Recipe of the week: Slow Cooker Whole Pepper Lemon Chicken


  • 1/4 cup butter or organic coconut oil, softened
  • 2 teaspoons lemon pepper (look for simple ingredients like lemon zest, pepper, and salt)
  • 1 teaspoon dried thyme
  • juice from 1 lemon
  • 2 clove garlic, minced
  • 1 (2 to 3 pound) whole chicken, giblets removed
  • 1 lemon, sliced to 1/2-inch thick slices
  • 1/4 cup peppercorns


  1. Rinse chicken, pat dry with paper towels. Loosen the skin over the breast and thighs with fingers.
  2. Combine first 5 ingredients. Spread seasoned butter over entire chicken and beneath the loosened skin using a teaspoon or fingers.
  3. Place chicken into a slow cooker. Place lemon slices on chicken. Place peppercorns onto chicken and into the slow cooker.
  4. Cook on High for 4 hours or Low for 6-8 (cook until chicken is very tender and an instant-read meat thermometer inserted into the thickest part of a thigh, not touching bone, reads at least 160 degrees F (70 degrees C)).
  5. Serve chicken pieces with any sauce and a few whole (cooked & softened) peppercorns.
