1Place the sliver onion or red onion and the slice carrot in the slow cooker.
Put the chicken on top of the vegetables.
Squeeze the lemon over everything, then slice it into rounds and put a couple of the slices in the cavity of the bird.
Season all over with thyme, sage salt, and pepper.
2Cover and cook on Low for 6 -8 hours or on High 3-4 hours.
Season with additional slat and pepper, and chopped fresh parsley if desired
3You could substitute an already made blend of spices called Poultry Seasoning for the thyme and sage. The poultry blend contains those herbs, as well marjoram, parsley, and sometimes savory and rosemary.
