Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing! I was skeptical about cooking a whole chicken.... More skeptical about cooking it in the slow cooker... But I'm glad I did! This is the best chicken!!!!! I make it over and over again and it comes out great every time:)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Crazy easy, Family Favorite! This has now become my "Go To" whole chicken recipe. And, how could it not be? EVERY time I make it the family raves about it. And, it's the easiest whole chicken recipe! Rustic herb is magic on poultry! The lemon isn't overpowering, either...subtle. *I like to drizzle a little roasted garlic infused oil before adding those wonderful TS spices! Kudos to the person that came up w/this recipe!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Absolutely Delicious Chicken!! I was skeptical as I've never done a full chicken in the crockpot, but this was DELICIOUS! I had a 5.5 lb chicken, and I used about 2 Tbsp total of spices (a bit more Rustic Herb than the Garlic Pepper), and used two lemons. Only thing I'd do next time is add some fresh rosemary for a bit of that flavor. Cooked 6 hours on low and it fell off the bone. Will definitely make again!!
