Everyone has that one thing they can’t cook. That thing that no matter how simple it is, no matter how closely you follow directions, you always fail. Right? Or is it just me? So I admit, there are actually two seemilgly simple things I just can’t make. One is rice. I truly feel like the laws of physics defy themselves when I try to make rice. Luckily, I solved that problem with a rice cooker. Done.
Cooking fail number two: a whole chicken. I can make turkey with no problem, but no matter how long I keep a whole chicken in the oven, it comes out raw in the middle. I don’t get it. Luckily, I found a solution to this problem too: the slow cooker. Not only does cooking it in the slow cooker ensure I can actually cook said chicken, but it always comes out moist and is so easy to put together. And I can come home to the smell of dinner and a warm, hearty meal. I will never try to cook a chicken in the oven again.
They are all generally around the same size, but I always try to buy the biggest chicken I can. This way I know I’ll have healthy leftovers during the week for salads. I would tell you how best to slice this chicken, but slicing is not an option. It basically just falls off the bone when you try to pull it out.
- 1 Whole Chicken (The size really doesn't matter)
- 2 tsp Salt
- 2 tsp Lemon pepper
- 2-3 sprigs Thyme
- 2-3 sprigs Rosemary
- 1/2 Onion
- 1 Lemon
- 1 Orange
- 1/2 Cup Chicken Broth
- Remove the giblets and neck from inside the chicken and rinse it inside and out. Place it in a slow cooker
- Sprinkle the chicken with the salt and lemon pepper.
- Slice the onion, lemon and orange.
- Place half the onion, lemon and orange slices inside the cavity of the chicken, and place the rest on top of the chicken.
- Lay the rosemary and thyme on top of the chicken and pour the chicken broth in the bottom of the slow cooker.
- Cook on low for 8 hours.
