Don't let the sweetness turn you away from this, I think its really good and we love it served over rice. (I don't brown the chicken and I don't use the 5 spice powder - also I use thighs, but that's just our preference for the dark meat.)
Crock Pot Lemon Chicken

3# chicken pieces bone-in, dredged in seasoned flour (we like chicken thighs and I add a pinch of 5-spice powder to the flour, along with a little salt & pepper)
brown the chicken in a skillet (I usually skip that)
mix together in a crock pot:
6 oz can of lemonade
1 tsp balsamic vinegar
3 T brown sugar
3 T catsup
add the chicken and cook on high for 3 to 4 hours
Crockpot Chicken Tortilla Soup
1 or 2 boneless chicken breasts (can be frozen), cut into thirds
1 (15 ounce) can diced tomatoes (I like del monte)
1 (10 ounce) can enchilada sauce
1 medium onion, chopped
1 (4 oz) can chopped green chilies
2 cloves garlic, minced
2 (14.5 ounce) cans chicken broth
1 teaspoon cumin
1 teaspoon chili powder
1 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
1 bay leaf
1 (10 oz) package frozen corn
2 Tbsps chopped cilantro
7 corn tortillas
Place all ingredients (except cilantro, tortillas and vegetable oil) in crockpot. Cover, and cook on Low for 6 to 8 hours or on High for 3 to 4 hours. Shred chicken with forks; stir in cilantro a few minutes before serving.
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Lightly brush both sides of tortillas with oil. Cut tortillas into strips; place on a baking sheet. Bake in preheated oven until crisp, about 10 to 15 minutes. To serve, spread tortilla strips over soup. Makes 8 servings

My note: I added a little sugar toward the end (after testing) and bought canned whole chilies so I could remove seeds. Also made sure I bought Mild enchilada sauce! This is really delicious (and I like that I could throw in frozen chicken :) Ann
We really enjoy this and the chicken comes out very moist and tender.
Make 4 tennis sized balls of foil and put in the bottom of the crockpot. Remove the gizzard, livers, etc, from a whole chicken cavity. Rinse and sprinkle cavity with 1 tsp of seasoned salt. Stuff with half of a lemon. Put in crockpot, sprinkle with the other half of lemon juice and sprinkle over chicken with seasoned salt and a little pepper. Cover and cook for 6-7 hours on low. Will be falling apart tender and the juice is great over the chicken. Can be thickened and used as gravy if desired.
Cut about 5 carrots into large chunks, and cut about 4 onions into large wedges and put in the bottom of the crockpot. You want enough vegetables to keep the chicken up off of the bottom. Remove the giblets and the neck if they're in the chicken - rinse and season the cavity with salt, pepper and a piece of fresh rosemary. Place bird breast side down on top of the vegetables. Cover and cook on low for about 7 hours. There will be lots of juice. Good with mashed potatoes!
