This was my first attempt at making a whole chicken in the slow cooker. I was rather nervous, but it was very good. I will say though, it is difficult to skin a whole chicken. I cooked my chicken on high for 3 hours then let it sit in the warm setting for another 30 minutes while I finished dinner. The only complaint I had was it was slightly dried out, not to the point of being inedible, but it was dry. This however could be due to my slow cooker as it over cooks everything. I only put in about a tablespoon of olive oil, as it was all I had. I also used the juice of half a lemon, I am not sure what it measured to. I cooked the chicken with the breast down and based the back about every 30 minutes. I reduced about a cup of the liquid from the chicken for a gravy, that I served over mashed potatoes. The sauce has a slightly oriental flavor, although not strong, with a hint of citrus. It was very good. I really liked it as did my husband and daughter. We also had with broccoli and salad.
