Serves: 6 

  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1.3kg whole chicken
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 2 lemons
  • 1 onion, coarsely chopped
  • 1 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 120ml dry white wine
  • 1 teaspoon crushed garlic


  1. Heat the olive oil in a deep-sided frying pan over medium-high heat. Season the chicken with salt and pepper; fry in the hot oil until browned on all sides.
  2. Meanwhile, chop one of the lemons into chunks and place into a slow cooker along with the onion, thyme, white wine and garlic. Cut the remaining lemon into quarters and stuff into the cavity of the chicken. Place the chicken into the slow cooker breast side down on top of the onion and lemon mixture. Cover and cook on Low for 6 hours, or for 3 hours on High. Chicken is done when the legs move easily in their sockets and the internal temperature of the breast has reached 70 degrees C.
