Crockpot Citrus Garlic BBQ Chicken

I'm all about easy, fast and yummy these days and this recipe fits all of that!  After just a few simple steps the crockpot does all the work and the whole thing is done in 4 hours.  The chicken comes out juicy, tender and has a nice tangy flavor.

Whole chicken
1 orange
1 lemon
1 lime
1/2 cup of BBQ sauce
5 garlic cloves

Cut all of the citrus in half and juice both halves of each fruit into a bowl.  Add the BBQ sauce, mix and set aside.  Rub the chicken with one half of each and then place those halves into the cavity (I did this with the chicken in the crockpot).  Crush the garlic cloves, rub the chicken and then place them in the chicken with the citrus halves.  Pour the sauce mix over the chicken.  Place the lid on and cook for about 4 hours on High. Carefully remove chicken and let cool, the chicken will just fall off the bone. I served it the first night with couscous and veggies.  I also added it later to salads and a risotto with mushrooms and green beans, so it is great for more than one meal.
