Carolyn's Chicken ala Crock Pot

Chicken is one of the staples of our dinner menus.  We both love it and I make it in many different ways.  This is one of my favorites.  Do remember though that they are MY favorites, so feel free to add anything you want, spices, etc. to perhaps make it your favorite, but I must say this is really good just the way it is. :)  Enjoy

Carolyn's Chicken a la Crock Pot
Yield: 4 servings

1 Roaster Chicken
1 Lemon
1/4 c Honey
1/2 c Orange Juice

Rinse Chicken well inside and out. Roll the lemon on a flat top to soften, and pierce well with a 2 tined fork.  Place the lemon in the cavity of the chicken and place the chicken in the crock pot.

Mix the honey and the orange juice together well and pour over the chicken. I sometime add a sprinkle of garlic pepper at this point. Not always.

Cook on low until done. When you take the chicken out of the pot, remove the lemon very carefully, it will be hot and squeeze the juice over the chicken. Yummy!

Cook's Tip:  I'm not going to tell you how many hours to cook this at as all of today's crock pots run differently.  Use your instant thermometer and cook till done as stated above.
