WELCOME

Welcome to this slow cooker/crockpot blog. I believe slow cookers are the best thing to happen to modern day cooks. I used mine often when I worked outside the home and continue to do so even in retirement. It is so nice to put food on and forget about it. Slow cookers also allow us to cook many things we would normally have to use the oven for; what a relief in hot Texas weather! Some of these recipes are mine, many are ones I have collected over the years.

CHICKEN AND RED POTATOES

2 tbsp butter, softened
8 garlic cloves, minced
1 tbsp fresh rosemary, minced
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp pepper
1 (about 3-lb) whole chicken
1 cup chicken broth
3 tbsp lemon juice
6 red potatoes, cut in half
fresh minced chives or cilantro for garnish, if desired

Make a rub by combining the butter, garlic, rosemary, salt, and pepper together in a small bowl; rub over chicken and in the cavity of the chicken.  Lift skin and rub under skin where possible.

Place the chicken along with the broth, lemon juice and potato halves into a crockpot or slow cooker.  Place lid on cooker and cook on low 8 to 10 hours.  Or you may cook on high 4 to 5 hours.

Using a large spatula remove the chicken from the cooker.  Use a slotted spoon to remove the potatoes.  Garnish with the chives or cilantro before serving, if desired.

Yield: 4 servings
