Wash a whole chicken (or small turkey) and place breast-up in crockpot. Stuff and season as desired (I put lemon pieces inside the bird, and then rubbed the breast and wings with olive oil, and liberally sprinkled with dried garlic and sea salt). Put 1/4 to 1/2 cup water in the bottom, cover and turn on high. It should be done in 4-5 hours. I used the left over juices as a 'gravy' over the meat and green beans.
I love using my crockpot for roasts... it is so easy, and the meat comes out moist and tender every time.
