Fresh Chicken Crockpot

The most frustrating part of baking a chicken is cutting all the meat off the bones. Until now... put that little chicken into your crockpot, season and walk away. At the end of the day the meat will literally be falling off the bones. Brilliant! A dad of one of our CrossFit kids shared this idea with me, and it works! I included the spices I used, but you can use your favorite combination and it will work just fine.

Fresh Crockpot Chicken
1 Whole Chicken (you will want to be sure to choose something that will fit in your crockpot. I used this 3.5lb chicken from Amazon Fresh)
1 Lemon
Olive Oil (or fat of your choice)
Aluminum Foil

Rinse your chicken inside and out. Make 3 foil balls and place them in the bottom of your crockpot. Place chicken on top of foil. Place oil, seasonings and sliced lemon on top of your chicken. Turn crockpot on high and cook for 1 hour. Next, turn the temperature down to low and continue to cook for about 8 hours or until meat is thoroughly cook and juices run clear. Feel free to baste chicken a few times throughout cooking time for a moister chicken.

As you can see from my picture the chicken was literally falling apart as I took it out of the pot. It was delicious! Enjoy!
