  • 1 small onion chopped
  • 2 carrots peeled and diced
  • 2 stalks of celery diced
  • 3 cloves of garlic peeled and smashed
  • 5 sprigs of fresh thyme 3 diced

  • Wash your chicken in cold water and then pat dry with napkins or paper towels
  • Generously season the inside and outside of the chicken with your sea salt and crushed white pepper
  • Cover the bottom of your crock pot with half of your diced veggies and lay your chicken on top of them
  • Place 1 clove of garlic and your 2 un-diced sprigs of thyme inside the bird
  • Now sprinkle your diced thyme and remaining chopped veggies over the top of your chicken
  • Juice a fresh lemon over the chicken and then place the lemon halves inside the cavity of the chicken
  • Place in your crock-pot and cook on low for 6 hours
  • I shredded all the meat and removed all the bones and placed it back in the broth in the crock pot and served it shredded with all the veggies
  • Enjoy all by itself or with a side of Grilled BBQ Asparagus.
