A whole chicken is rubbed inside and out with salt and pepper, then stuffed with halved lemons and baked with a sauce of lemon and Greek Viniagrette salad dressing - delicious!!
Ingredients
1 whole roasting chicken (3 1/2 lbs)
Salt and pepper
1 medium lemon, washed, halved
1/2 cup Kraft Greek Vinaigrette Dressing
 
Directions
1. Rinse chicken and pat dry with paper towel.  Sprinkle inside and out with salt and pepper.  Place in crockpot. 

2. Squeeze juice from lemon and mix with dressing in a small bowl.  Place the squeezed lemon halves inside the cavity of the chicken.  Drizzle dressing mixture over chicken. 
3. Cover crockpot and cook on  LOW 8 hours.  Carefully remove from crockpot to platter.  Pour juices over chicken and serve - chicken will pull apart easily.
 
Notes:
Serves:  5

May roast uncovered in 350 degree oven 1 - 1/2 hours, basting occasionally, until juices run clear and meat is no longer pink when cut into.
