This is so easy and delicious, it's not even a recipe. It's just yum.
Take a whole chicken, and marinade for a few hours in 1/4C soy sauce, 3T honey, and 4 chopped cloves of garlic.
Place in the crockpot and cook on low for 5 hours.
It comes out with sweet crispy skin and succulent white meat. Serve with potato salad and fresh garden salad.
Save the breast meat and make into a chicken salad the next day, with croutons and fresh mint. Mmmmm.
Any guesses how summery it was in the week before Christmas, when I cooked and photographed this?
Yeah, pretty summery.
