This is a delicious meal that really tastes good. I am beginning to consider a lower-carb lifestyle and this is one meal we eat that will not need to be adapted. I'm including this in Kelly the Kitchen Kop's Real Food Wednesday Low-Carb Edition.

Lemon Garlic Chicken
1 whole chicken
3 small lemons
3 large cloves garlic
1 tsp salt
1 tsp pepper
1/4 tsp EACH oregano, basil, rosemary, thyme
2 tsp lemon juice

Slice lemons and garlic into slices. Lay 1/2 of the lemon slices and 2/3 of the garlic slices on the bottom of the crockpot or baking dish. Place remaining lemon and garlic under the chicken's skin. Season chicken with salt, pepper, herbs. Sprinkle chicken with lemon juice. Bake at 400 degrees for 45-55 minutes OR cook in crockpot on high for 4 to 4 1/2 hours. Remove chicken from pan and let stand for 10 minutes. Meanwhile, remove lemons and garlic from bottom of pan and thicken juices to serve over the chicken.

What a pretty blog! I came over from Real Food Wednesday. I have a family of twelve so when I read "Mama of Many" my ears burned. One question: how do you feed ten people on a single chicken, especially a lemony one?

thanks so much for stopping by! To feed my family this recipe, I would bake two chickens, and include a number of sides. I would make a large green salad, a veggie side dish and homemade rice a roni or a baked potato.
