Rosemary Lemon Garlic Chicken has 4 ingredients.

To make: throw them all into a crock pot and cook for 6 hours.

THAT'S IT.



The meat falls from the bone and is infused with flavors deep and tart and rich and warm. It's studded with moist, spreadable cloves of perfectly cooked garlic, and translucent slices of nearly liquefied lemons.

I could eat this forever. And guys, I don't even like chicken.

Here's the recipe. Some of the commenters said that the lemon made it too bitter. I used Meyer lemons which are a little sweet, have very little pith, and taste like they were picked ripe on a warm afternoon. They were so good in this recipe that we ate them with the chicken instead of discarding them.

I was turned on to this recipe via a pair of posts in the [livejournal.com profile] what_a_crock community by [livejournal.com profile] happytootum. She also took the two photos above.

Is the chicken dry?

No, it's actually supermoist, as you can kinda see in the result pictures. I don't really know how it works but somehow cooking a whole chicken produces a lot of fluid, and it just marinates in that for the rest of the cooking time.
