Welcome to this slow cooker/crockpot blog. I believe slow cookers are the best thing to happen to modern day cooks. I used mine often when I worked outside the home and continue to do so even in retirement. It is so nice to put food on and forget about it. Slow cookers also allow us to cook many things we would normally have to use the oven for; what a relief in hot Texas weather! Some of these recipes are mine, many are ones I have collected over the years.

1 (3 to 4 lb) whole chicken
1/2 cup chopped onion
2 tbsp butter
1 lemon, juiced
2 tsp grated lemon peel
1 tbsp fresh parsley, coarsley chopped
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 tsp thyme

Rinse chicken and pat dry with paper toweling.  Remove and discard any excess fat.

Place the onion in the chicken's cavity and rub the butter over the skin.  Place in a slow cooker or crockpot.  Squeeze the lemon juice over the chicken and sprinkle with the parsley, lemon peel, salt, and thyme.

Cover and cook on low for 6 to 8 hours or until chicken is cooked through.
