Lemon Dill Chicken

Back when I lived in Denver and all I had to feed was my sweet dog, Habibi, the occasional neighbor and myself, I made up this recipe. It's a favorite of Randy's even though he doesn't like chicken thighs. (Or he didn't used to.) It could be made with white meat, if you prefer. Or you can even do a whole chicken like this. I really like the individual pieces because the skin gets nice and crispy and the seasoning is easy to scrape off (not eating the skin right now - you know New Year's Resolutions and all). Enough of my rambling, on to the recipe.

Lemon Dill Chicken

1 package of chicken thighs (4 come in a package)
1/2 inch of water in the bottom of the crockpot
Few good squirts of lemon juice
Garlic Pepper Salt
Simply Organic Dash O Dill Seasoning (this is a bit hard to find, but I found it at Food for Thought)
Simply Organic Dill (just because it needs some more dill - mmmm)
Couple flakes of lemon salt on top of each piece

Assemble ingredients in the crockpot. Set on low for all day cooking, and high for half a day cooking. So simple, flavorful and the chicken falls off the bone.

How does the skin get "crispy" in the crock pot?
