The aroma of rosemary and garlic is mouthwatering, and this recipe could not be easier. A few minutes of prep and you'll come home to a delicious dinner. Even a beginner cook could make this and have it turn out perfectly.—Anita Bell, Hermitage, Tennessee

"I made this roasted in the oven because I doubled the size of recipe for my family and chicken was too big for the crock pot. Meat was juicy and tender, and the lemon flavor was subtle but good. The herb rub was excellent. I made gravy with the pan juices, and it was good over the potatoes and chicken as well. I will use this recipe again."

"Definitely easy; however, extremely strong rosemary flavor. Also, the lemon flavor just didn't go well; not sure what the purpose of the lemon is."

"I cooked the chicken on the high setting of my Cuisinart slow cooker, instead of low, for about five hours then left it at warm for another hour. I also added an onion quartered and served it with the chicken juices. It was delicious! The chicken was falling off of the bone with tenderness."

"After getting started, I realized I was out of rosemary so I used some thyme and tarragon instead. Also added 1/2 an onion to the veggies. This was easy to put together in the morning and I was glad to have dinner ready after a busy day. Will make again!"
