Slow Cooker Chicken

This is a favorite in our house. So inexpensive and EASY! I like to make a side of roasted potatoes and a green salad with this on the first day and then turn it into a tortilla soup or something the next.

1 (2 to 3 pound) whole chicken
salt and pepper to taste
1 teaspoon paprika
Lemon- cut into wedges
2 Garlic cloves in skin

1. Wad three pieces of aluminum foil into 3 to 4 inch balls, and place them in the bottom of the slow cooker.
2. Rinse the chicken, inside and out, under cold running water. Pat dry with paper towels. Season the chicken with the salt, pepper and paprika. Stuff chicken with lemon wedges and garlic clove. Place in the slow cooker on top of the crumbled aluminum foil.
3. Set the slow cooker to High for 1 hour, then turn down to Low for about 8 to 10 hours, or until the chicken is no longer pink and the juices run clear.
