Fragrant Lemon Chicken

My mother-in-law gave this to me from All Recipes.  J absolutely loves whole chicken cooked in the crock pot. It was submitted to All Recipes from Dawn Ash.

1 apple–peeled, cored, & quartered

1 stalk celery with leaves, chopped

3 lb whole chicken

salt to taste

ground black pepper to taste

1 onion, chopped

1/2 tsp dried rosemary, crushed

1 lemon, zested & juiced

1 cup hot water

1. Rub salt & pepper into the skin of the chicken. Place apple & celery inside the chicken. Place chicken in slow cooker. Sprinkle chopped onion, rosemary, and lemon juice and zest over chicken. Pour 1 cup hot water into the slow cooker.

2. Cover, and cook on high for 1 hour. Switch to Low, and cook for 6-8 hours, basting several times.
