Paleo Recipe - Easy Crockpot Rosemary & Garlic Chicken Stew

I threw this together in a pot on Valentine's Day and had a big bowl of it yesterday for lunch.  It is very flavorful and the chicken was so moist it almost melted in my mouth!

Easy Crockpot Rosemary & Garlic Chicken Stew:

1 whole free range chicken (my preference is free range)
1 sweet potato diced
3 organic carrots diced
2 stalks celery chopped
1 large onion chopped
1 medium eggplant diced
1 can diced tomatoes
20 cloves of garlic whole cloves peeled
3 whole sprigs of rosemary

Rinse chicken and take out any parts such as neck, gizzards.  Rub with salt and pepper.  Stuff 10 cloves plus whole rosemary sprigs inside cavity.  Place 1/2 of first 3 ingredients plus 5 cloves of garlic into crock pot.  Place chicken breast side up into crockpot.  Cover with the other half of first 3 ingredients plus 5 cloves of garlic.

Turn crockpot on low heat and cover, cooking for 3 hours.  Add tomatoes and eggplant and cook for another 2-3 hours.  Chicken is done when leg bones wiggles very easily and chicken is falling off the bone.  Once igredients are cool, take chicken out of the pot and remove all meat from bones.  The meat is VERY easy to remove and practically falls off the bone.  Make sure you remove all bones from stew.  Add chicken meat back into veggies, stir and serve!  Delicioso!
