“I couldn't find a slow cooker recipe for chicken that was quite right at the time, so I made one up, and it has been a hit! Browning the chicken first avoids the strange pale chicken common to slow cooked chickens.”

Original recipe yields 6 servings

Directions

  1. Heat the olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Season the chicken with salt and pepper, then fry in the hot oil until browned on all sides.
  2. Meanwhile, chop one of the lemons into chunks and place into a slow cooker along with the onion, thyme, white wine and garlic. Cut the remaining lemon into quarters and stuff into the cavity of the chicken. Place the chicken into the slow cooker breast side down on top of the onion and lemon mixture. Cover and cook on Low for 6 hours, or for 3 hours on High. Chicken is done when the legs move easily in their sockets and the internal temperature of the breast has reached 160 degrees F (70 degrees C).

After reading the other review, I decided to use boneless skinless chicken. I used fresh thyme and lemon but felt the sauce was too diluded. I even tried to add a little creme fraiche to give it some extra flavor and body but that didn't help.

This was a good recipe. My only modification is to remove some of the chicken juices throughout the cooking process. Otherwise use just have a boiled chicken. This is true for all crock pot whole chickens.

I was rather disappointed with this -- much too wet and the flavors were diluted.
