Haven't tried it yet, but suspect oven cooking would work best, perhaps with a garlic, chopped rosemary,thyme, and evoo emulsion baste. A Magic Bullet works well for an emulsion.

I was hoping for the lemomy garlic flavor thru out the chicken and it did not happen. I will try again in the oven and see if that is better.

This just was not good. I think the premise of cooking a whole chicken in a crock pot is the problem. The chicken came out tasting like it was boiled. And perhaps my crock pot runs hotter than the tested one, but on high, the chicken took only 2 1/2 hours to reach the correct temp. Perhaps this would have been better prepared in the oven. However, the rosemary & lemon flavor were only in the meat around the area of the cavity. The outer portions, including the leg & thigh, had no taste at all.

I thought this was a good recipe. What needs to be remembered is that of course, oven roasted chicken is better. However, for the convenience of a crock pot, this recipe is great. So that I could leave the chicken all day, I cooked it on low for 8 hours and didn't bother with a rack. Instead, I added whole carrots and celery sticks and a quartered onion to the bottom of the pot and set the chicken on that. Great weekday main course and the leftovers make a good chicken salad.
