I’ve finally hit that age where I don’t have the time or energy to make dinner or lunch every day. I was discussing this with my friend Stacey and she recommended a couple great crock pot recipes. Last Monday, when I had the day off, I decided to try her whole chicken recipe. I went to QFC to look for whole chickens, and learned the hard way, you should always buy one with the gizzards removed. When I got home, I attempted to remove whatever was in the chicken, got grossed out, and let it all roast. In the end, it wasn’t such a bad idea.
You can always put the chicken in the fridge and let the spices soak in overnight, or, if you’re impatient just like me, toss it in the crock pot and hope for the best. I started this at 2pm on low, and about 4 hours into it, I put the heat on high and it was finished at about 7:30 pm.
We roasted some red potatoes and grilled asparagus and shallot to finish it all of.
