Crock pot chicken….SO that I can sit!

Sometimes in order to sit, you must plan ahead.

I have never been great at the crock pot thing because I’m just not that into casseroles and meaty dishes which tend to make up the majority of crock pot recipes that I see.

But, two weeks ago I had to have a minor surgical procedure (everything’s fine so no need to worry there).  I knew that I wouldn’t be cooking that night when I got home but I wanted to have something healthy, nourishing, warming, and home-cooked feeling for us (Silvia included) to eat for dinner.

So, out came one rarely used crock pot.  In went one whole ‘roaster’ chicken that had been “resting” overnight with a nice rub on it’s skin.  In went a handful of chopped potatoes, carrots, celery and onions.  In went one lemon…half in the form of juice squeezed over the chicken and the other half directly inserted into the inside of the chicken.

On went the crock pot (low for about 8 hours) and later that evening, onto the table went dinner.

That easy.

And what did I do in the meantime?  I sat.  Nice!

  1. I love our crockpot! I use it at least once a week. I bought a good crockpot cookbook (by Betty Crocker) and get majority of my ideas form there. I end up tweaking the recipes a bit because (I’ll admit it) I’m a picky eater.
