I love breaking out my crock pot for dinner recipes. I tend to use it in phases, so if you see a number of slow cooked recipes in the near future, you’ll know why 🙂
Is there anything better than tossing a few ingredients into a big pot, closing the lid and coming home to a perfectly cooked dinner? This is exactly what you get with this recipe. It’s so “no fuss” that I didn’t even post a ton of photos. Keeping it simple today 🙂
I placed a whole 3-5 pound chicken in my crock pot, seasoned with salt, pepper and thyme, then put some of our favorite vegetables on top, carrots, celery and potatoes. I added about 1/2 cup chicken broth, closed the lid and let the crock pot do it’s magic.
