Crock Pot Lemon Pepper Chicken

This one might end up on a family favorite list.

1 whole roaster/fryer chicken (good sized one)
2 Tbsp. lemon pepper seasoning or more to your taste
1 lemon
1 onion
Cooking spray

Spray crock-pot with olive oil or something like Pam cooking spray. Wash out and clean out the chicken. Make sure you take out it's little lunch sack in the cavity.
Take about 4 pieces of aluminum foil and ball them up. Place them underneath the chicken in the crock pot to keep it from sticking. This will be it's little rack to sit on.
Clean off the outside of the lemon and cut it into three big pieces and then clean and cut up onion into several different pieces and place in the cleaned out chicken. This flavors it nicely throughout the body.
Place washed, cleaned out whole chicken in the crock-pot on the foil balls. For me I like to Spray a little bit of the cooking spray on the chicken this makes the seasoning stick and also makes the skin a little crunchier. You could also use butter in the place of the spray. Sprinkle with lemon pepper seasoning. Cook on high 5-6 hours or on low 8-10 hours. There is no need to add liquid as the chicken will make it's own juices while in the crock-pot.

This is wonderful served with steam broccoli with a sprinkling of shredded cheese on it .
A tossed green salad and some fruit and this is a wonderful meal.

This got 8 forks from the family. It is easy, quick to make and very tasty. Better than the ones you buy pre-made at the market.

This sounds yummy. Sometimes instead of putting together one of my low-fat recipes, I will just do a piece of meat with some veggies or fruit to make it simple but still healthy. We will be in our new home Thursday. I will try this recipe this weekend and let you know what everyone thought.

This sounds really good. We love lemon pepper chicken, but I've never made it in the crock pot.

Oh wow, how simple and I love all those flavors so it's a must for me to try. I'm always glad to find blogs of great cooks whose families appreciate them. Thanks for visiting us at TwirlandTaste and following along on our twirls.
