"I love how this comes together so nicely with hardly any work. I season the chicken the night before and keep this covered in the refrigerator. Just pop into the slow cooker in the morning and then come home to a perfectly cooked tasty whole chicken. (This recipe is another great one from an anti-inflammatory diet given to me from my naturopathic doctor)"

Tips & Variations

No special items needed.



Good and easy -- chicken fell apart a bit but not too much. I didn't have any Italian seasoning so used tarragon. Will be using leftovers in chicken soup later in the week. Thanks for sharing!
