Tried a new recipe – tasted really good although a bit bland – so needed dressing up so I added more lemons -MUCH better! SO simple the kids can do it!

This was sooo easy – the grandkids could have cooked it. So next time  I will make it with them! It needed some more kick – so I added a bit to it – you may wish to put some hot sauce on yours – but the flavor was yummy. And the ease of cooking made up for the mild taste!

Ingredients: Here they are ( before I chopped the garlic!)IMG_6454



  • 1 organic chicken
  • 3 Meyer lemons
  • 4 Tbsp of Olive oil
  • 1/4 lb of Butter
  • Fresh chopped garlic
  • Fresh Rosemary – chopped
  • Lemon Pepper


  1. Mix butter lemon pepper rosemary garlic and zest of the three lemons along with the juice of half a lemon together.
  2. Slide your fingers under the skin of the chicken and push the mixture under the skin wherever you can
  3. Season the outside of the chicken with lemon pepper
  4. Squeeze the remaining juice of the lemons into the slow cooker.
  5. Put what remains of the three lemons into the cavity of the chicken along with a few tablespoons of the butter/garlic/chopped rosemary mixture.
  6. Place the chicken in the slow cooker and drizzle the olive oil over it
  7. Cook on low heat for 6-8 hours or until the chicken is falling off the bone ( I didn’t have 8 hours so I put it into the slow cooker for two and then into the oven in the same cooking casserole for another 1.25 hours at 395 degrees – delicious!
  8. Serve with basmati rice fried with yellow tomatoes and olive oil and a nice green salad
  9. YUM!
