I love crockpot recipes! It usually requires little preparation, heat, and time spent in the kitchen. This recipe only needs a few ingredients and the result is a delicious, juicy chicken! It can be used in sandwiches, salads, or carved and served as an entree with your favorite side dishes

Crockpot Lemon & Garlic Chicken


  • 1 whole chicken (approx. 4-6 pounds)
  • 2-3 lemons (depending on your preference)
  • 2 heads of garlic 
  • Garlic Olive Oil (I use Chaparral Gardens before Spice It Up started selling it's own brand!)
  • 1-2 Tablespoons of Victoria Herbes de Provence
  • Spray crockpot with Nonstick spray (for easier cleanup)
  • Cut 2 lemons the tops/bottoms of the lemons and then cut them in half. Cut the garlic heads in half and lay both the garlic and lemons on the bottom of the crockpot
  • Remove the insides from the chicken and pour the garlic olive oil (or regular or basil olive oil) over the chicken, covering all parts
  • Rub the chicken with the herbs de provence, covering all of the chicken

  • Place the chicken in the crockpot and set it for high for 4 hours or until the chicken reaches 165 degrees Fahrenheit. (You can also take the lemon bottoms and place them on top of the chicken for additional flavor)
  • Turn off the crockpot and allow the chicken to rest for 15 minutes. The chicken will be very juicy, so be careful removing it from the crockpot.
  • Carve and Serve!
