Crock Pot Chicken

Something about cooking chicken really slowly makes it really good. This chicken is tender and juicy, and practically falls apart when you try to get it out of the crock pot. It's delicious!

Jeff did this up this morning. I don't remember all the exact stuff he did, and he's already gone to bed so I can't ask him. So I'll just write down generally what he did.

Crock Pot Chicken

Cut up a few potatoes, some celery, and an onion. Toss with a bit of olive oil and some seasonings. Place in the bottom of crock pot.

Place a whole chicken on top of the vegetables. Top it with seasonings such as garlic powder, paprika, basil. I don't recall what all seasonings he used, so get creative - that's pretty much what he did, and it worked great!

You can add a bit of water to the pot, or not. If you do, only add 1/4 to 1/2 cup. If you don't, that's fine.

Cover the crock pot and cook on low 8-10 hours, or on high 4 to 5 hours.

Place chicken and vegetables on serving platter. Make a gravy with the pan drippings: pour drippings into a saucepan. In a small container combine about 1/4 cup milk and 1 tbsp. flour. Whisk into pan drippings and heat until thickened. Add salt and pepper to taste.

Ooohhh, that chicken looks yummy! I love doing roasted chicken, but it heats up the house, and if it cooks too long the breasts are dry. I always stick whatever I have on top of the chicken...
