Slow Cooked Rosemary Lemon Chicken

Hello Friends and Happy Slow Cooker Saturday

I hope you all had a fantabulous Friday and are now enjoying a super Saturday. Slow Cooked Rosemary Lemon Chicken is perfect for a Sunday dinner so you can relax after church and not have to spend the afternoon in the kitchen.

Slow Cooked Rosemary Lemon Chicken

 With just a few ingredients this is the makings for an easy peasy, cheapie meal. You will need 1 lemon, sliced into rings, a few sprigs of Rosemary and a small to medium chicken rinsed and patted dry.

Remove and discard the neck and giblets or you can freeze them to be used in another recipe.

Rosemary Lemon Chicken


Using a sharp knife cut slits into breast and thighs of chicken then stuff in a few Rosemary leaves.  Put lemon slices inside bird’s cavity and two under the skin covering the breast.  You can add onion, garlic and a few more sprigs of Rosemary if you wish then place into the Crockpot.

 Pour in 1 cup of chicken broth, I didn’t have any broth so I used two bouillon cubes dissolved in hot water.


Pour 1 cup of broth over chicken

Cover and slow cook for 6 hours, after which you can remove and place in a baking dish.  Place chicken in a preheated oven on 350~ for an additional 15-20 minutes if you want to brown the skin.

Browning the chicken is cosmetic only, you can simply remove the skin, slice and serve.

    You can also lift the skin up with your fingers and slide the rosemary right underneath. I do that with my chicken. Another great recipe from the crockpot Queen 😉

    Rosemary and lemon are two of my favourite ingredients to add to chicken. They create such a distinct flavour that is a nice change from the regular fare. Looks delicious, Antoinette!
