Recipe: Garlic Lemon Chicken

 Garlic Lemon Chicken (in a Crockpot)
Ingredients:
·         1 (3 lb) broiler-fryer chickens (whole or pieces)
·         1 teaspoon crumbled dried oregano
·         1/2 teaspoon crumbled dried rosemary
·         3 garlic cloves, minced
·         2 tablespoons butter
·         1/4 cup sherry wine or 1/4 cup chicken broth (I used chicken broth)
·         1/4 cup lemon juice
·         salt and pepper

Directions
1.    1 Wash chicken; pat dry; season chicken generously with salt and pepper; sprinkle half of oregano, rosemary and garlic inside cavity of chicken; melt butter in frying pan and brown chicken; transfer to slow cooker or crock pot; sprinkle with remaining oregano, rosemary and garlic; add sherry to frying pan and stir to loosen brown bits; pour into slow cooker.
2.    2 Cover, cook on LOW (200 degrees) for 7 hours; add lemon juice and cook 1 more hour (total of 8); transfer chicken to cutting board; skim fat from juices and serve over chicken.

For this recipe, I used chicken pieces instead of a whole chicken. Since I did that, I cooked it for 6 hours instead of 8. Just remember to check it, and always with chicken make sure it's fully cooked.
