6 ball onions, sliced thin
¼ cup of lemon juice
6 garlic cloves Pepper and salt, taste
1 tablespoon of pure olive oil
1 (3-4 pounds) whole chicken, chop into serving pieces
Directions Combine the garlic cloves, ball onions, salt, pepper, and lemon juice in a sizeable zipper-type bag.
Add the pieces of chicken, zip up the bag and roll the chicken around in the bag to coat
Put in the refrigerator and let it marinate overnight
Remove the chicken marinade then pour the marinade left behind into the crockpot
Brown the chicken pieces in a little olive oil using a skillet with over moderate heat
Transfer the chicken pieces to the crockpot ensuring that the dark meat is at the bottom and the white at the top
Cover the crockpot with its lid and let it cook on low setting for 4-6hrs
After the chicken is done, remove the crockpot from heat and reserve, keeping it warm
Transfer any residual cooking juices and onions into a skillet and continue cooking for approximately 10 minutes (the mixture should reduce by half)
Engagement Roast Chicken
Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F.
Remove and discard the chicken giblets. Pat the outside dry. Liberally salt and pepper the inside of the chicken. Cut the lemons in quarters, place 2 quarters in the chicken along with the garlic and reserve the rest of the lemons. Brush the outside of the chicken with olive oil and sprinkle the chicken liberally with salt and pepper. Tie the legs together with kitchen string and tuck the wing tips under the body of the chicken. Place the chicken in a small (11 by 14-inch) roasting pan. (If the pan is too large, the onions will burn.) Place the reserved lemons and the sliced onions in a large bowl and toss with 2 tablespoons of olive oil, 1 teaspoon of salt, and 1/2 teaspoon of pepper. Pour the mixture around the chicken in the pan.
Roast the chicken for about 1 hour and 15 minutes, until the juices run clear when you cut between a leg and a thigh. Remove the chicken to a platter, cover with aluminum foil, and allow to rest for 10 minutes while you prepare the sauce, leaving the lemons and onions in the pan.
Place the pan on top of the stove and turn the heat to medium-high. Add the wine and stir with a wooden spoon to scrape up the brown bits. Add the stock and sprinkle on the flour, stirring constantly for a minute, until the sauce thickens. Add any juices that collect under the chicken. Carve the chicken onto a platter and serve with the lemons, onions, and warm sauce.
