1 medium onion sliced (any color)
1 lb potato (cut into 2-inch pieces)
1 cup low-sodium chicken broth
2 Tbsp dried oreganoOR
2 Tbsp salt-free, dried Italian spice blend
3 lb whole chicken (giblet package removed and thrown away)
1/2 tsp garlic powder
2 halved, fresh lemonsOR
1/2 cup lemon juice
2 Tbsp coarsely chopped parsleyOR
1 Tbsp dried parsley
In the bottom of a large slow cooker, add onion slices, chopped potatoes, chicken broth, and 1 teaspoon oregano. Stir to combine.
Using a knife or your fingers, remove chicken skin and fat from chicken and throw away. Place chicken on top of potatoes (breast-side down, if possible) and sprinkle oregano and garlic powder on top. Pour lemon juice into slow cooker or squeeze lemons and add to crockpot.
Cook until potatoes are fork-tender and chicken is cooked, about 9 to 10 hours on low or 4 hours on high. Garnish with parsley and serve.
Cooking Tip: Using a high setting on your crockpot reduces cooking time. However, if you know you’ll be away from home for 10 to 12 hours, setting up the chicken in a crockpot on low in the morning is a great option.
Keep it Healthy: Skin-free chicken is always an excellent choice for a meal since it contains less fat and more protein than beef.
Tip: Russet potatoes are usually the cheapest.
