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.

 1 chicken (about 3 lbs) whole
2 large carrots, sliced into medium chunks
2 medium onions, thick sliced
2 celery stalks, cut into 10-inch pieces
2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp pepper
1/2 cup water
1 tsp dried basil

Place half of the carrots, half of the onion, and half of the celery in bottom of a crockpot or slow cooker.  Sprinkle the chicken with the salt and pepper and place atop the vegetables.  Add the remaining vegetables and the water.  Sprinkle the basil over all.

Cover and cook on low for approximately 8 hours or about 4 hours on high.  If you cook on high, add another cup of water.
