Put carrot and celery inside chicken cavity.
 Loosen the skin from the chicken by inserting fingers and gently pushing between skin and meat.
 Rub some of the garlic mixture under the loosened skin. Place the chicken, bone side down in a slow cooker and spread the remaining garlic mixture over top. Salt and pepper to taste. Pour orange juice around chicken in bottom of slow cooker. Cook on low 7 1/2 hours.
 Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Remove the chicken breast section from the slow cooker, and drumsticks place in an oven proof roasting pan smear a tiny amount of butter over skin on breasts and drum sticks. Set in oven for 15-20 minutes until skin is a nice golden brown.
Serve with a tossed salad, and roasted potatoes. We had corn from our CSA that needed to be eaten so that is what we had.
Tried a new roasted potato tonight:
