Directions

Combine minced garlic, lemon zest, plenty of salt and pepper and olive oil, mash it into a paste and rub it all over and under the skin of a whole chicken. Brown the chicken on all sides on the stove, then put the chicken in the slowcooker and cook it on low (200 degrees) for 6-7 hours. During the last half hour of cooking, add about 1/4 cup of fresh-squeezed lemon juice. Remove the chicken and put the leftover juices in a fat separator if you have one. Serve the chicken over rice and pour the juices on top.

The calories here are just an estimate -- it depends on what part of the chicken you're eating, whether you eat the skin, and (to a small degree) how much olive oil you use. I highly recommend separating out the fat so that you can have a delicious flavorful sauce to pour over everything. Rice is not included in the calorie calculations but I recommend brown or wild rice to get more whole grain in the meal, and wild rice in particular compliments the flavor of the chicken.
