I’ve had this recipe pinned for months, and finally decided to make it! Chicken that isn’t in the form of a chicken breast is a bit intimidating to me but this was so easy. I haven’t eaten it yet, but it has made my house smell amazing!
- 4 lemons
- 2-3 heads of garlic
- 1 whole chicken 4 to 5 pounds
- Fresh rosemary, or any fresh herbs
- All-purpose steak seasoning or salt and pepper
- Cut garlic heads and lemons in half and lay in bottom of slow cooker.
- Cut the bottoms off the lemons so they lay flat.
