  • Squeeze lemon juice over the chicken and sprinkle with parsley, salt, paprika, and thyme leaves. Cover and cook on Low until no longer pink in the center and juices run clear, 8 to 9 hours. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the thickest part of the thigh, near the bone, should read 165 degrees F (74 degrees C).

Cook's Notes:

You can use margarine instead of butter.

Use 1 teaspoon of dried parsley flakes instead of fresh parsley, if preferred.
