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.

2 tbsp butter, softened
8 garlic cloves, minced
1 tbsp fresh rosemary, chopped
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp freshly ground black pepper
1 (3-lb) whole chicken
1 cup chicken broth
3 tbsp fresh lemon juice
6 small red potatoes, halved
2 tbsp minced chives, for garnish

Combine the butter, garlic, rosemariy, salt and pepper together in a small mixing bowl.  Rub the mixture over the skin and inside the cavity of the chicken.

Place the chicken into a crockpot or slow cooker.  Arrange the potatoes around the chicken.

Combine the broth and lemon juice and pour over the chicken.

Place the lid on the cooker and cook on low setting for 8 to 10 hours or on high 4 to 5 hours.

Before serving, garnish with the chives, if desired.

Yield: 4 servings
