Day 18 Crockpot Challenge Simple Roast Chicken

As I sit and talk with a friend I realized how little people actually cook anymore. In fact, at nearly 30 years old she has never, oh yes never made a roast chicken. Now granted she is a busy woman, always running from meeting to meeting and really just never making time to do something good for herself. So I told her I would make her a post :O). Luckily she is a good friend and was excited to find out how she can make herself and her husband a great meal and not have to stand in the kitchen all day getting it ready. Here is what you will need to make yourself and your family a full meal Roast Chicken meal in your crockpot:

1 Whole Chicken
2 Cloves of Garlic 
Baby Carrots(However many you need to serve your family usually 1/2 per person I make)
Small New Potatoes(2-3 per person is what i like)
Pepper
Paprika
1 Tablespoon Butter(Melted)

I love how fast and easy this meal is for any family whether you are a busy business woman like my friend, a mom with little ones under foot all day. Simply place your chicken into the crockpot. Surround it with the garlic,  carrots and potatoes, you can really use any carrots and potatoes but buying them small save chopping time and I know sometimes I would love an extra couple of minutes in life. Take your melted butter and put it over your chicken, then sprinkle the chicken with the pepper and paprika. Don't put to much on but give it a good dusting. Place your lid on set it to low and head off to your busy day. When your family is ready for dinner you meal will be to.Not only will this be a full meal for a couple but it will have leftovers for future meals.

I have never ever cooked in a crockpot. EVER! So glad I hopped over to your blog. I need to try something new this spring. I cook every single night! In fact, I cook breakfast every morning. I take my lunch to work so I have to make that meal. (even if it's only a sandwich, berries and yogurt) and then I cook supper. Yes, every single night!!! See? I need to learn to cook in a crockpot. I hopped over from www.savedbygrace82.blogspot.com and I'm so glad I did!

I love roast chicken in the crockpot! I take aluminum foil, form it into balls and place my chicken on top to cook. Keeps the chicken from sitting in the grease that cooks out. I would be lost without my crockpot.
