Instructions
  1. Peel the carrots and cut off the ends.
  2. Chop the carrots into equal sized pieces.
  3. Remove the core from the celery bunch and cut off about ½" from the top of the celery stalks. Wash well.
  4. Chop the celery stalks similar in size to the carrots.
  5. Cut the ends off one yellow onion and gently press down on two cloves of garlic to more easily release the skin.
  6. Loosely chop the onion and garlic.
  7. Wash the hot yellow pepper.
  8. Slice the pepper in half and remove the seeds and the inner flesh if you don't want your meal to be too hot!
  9. Wash the lemon and apple. Cut the lemon into eighths. Cut the apple into quarters and remove the core. Cut each quarter in half.
  10. Wash the potatoes in a large colander. Use a vegetable scrub brush if needed.
  11. Cut the potatoes in half.
  12. Add all of the prepared ingredients above to the slow cooker crock pot. Also add the salt and sage. Mix well.
  13. Remove the whole chicken from the store packaging. Lay it breast side down and liberally coat the bottom with freshly ground pepper, chili power, and turmeric.
  14. Lay the chicken on its side on top of the vegetables in the crock pot. Coat each side with the chili and turneric.
  15. Lay the chicken on top of the vegetables, breast side up, and coat with the spices. If needed, used your hands to make a well so that the chicken will lay a bit lower inside the pot. I placed the apple slices and lemon wedges around the chicken, but you can also mix them in with the vegetables.
  16. Set the slow cooker to low for 10-12 hours. When the slow cooker is done carefully remove the chicken onto a cutting board. Use a couple of large spoons or whatever utensils you have.
  17. How to serve: you could serve the chicken on a platter, surrounded by the vegetables, or remove the meat from the bone and serve it on individual plates.
