Crock Pot Chicken

I got this recipe idea from Weelicious.  It is so simple and tasty that I don’t know why I’ve never heard of doing this before.   You simply throw a whole chicken in the crockpot and a few hours later you have dinner.   I was following her recipe, which you can find here,  but then made a few minor adjustments.

Here are most of my ingredients:

3-4 pound chicken

Fresh herbs (thyme, sage and rosemary – few sprigs of each)


Garlic clove


Just stuff it all into the chicken cavity, sprinkle with some salt and throw it into the crockpot.   It will make its own juices so no need to add any liquid.  Cook on high for about 3 hours and you end up with this:

Trust me, it tasted a lot better than it looked.   At least we have a good amount of leftover chicken – now I just have to figure out what to make with it!

Note: The Boy took one look at it, made a disgusted face and handed it right back to me.  I wonder how long he is going to be a vegetarian?


Hello world!

I suppose this would be more appropriately titled, “Hello Mom,” since she is probably the only person who will read this.  That said, I will do a quick introduction just so I can have a complete post and officially be a blogger.

I am a full-time registered dietitian, wife and mother of an 18 month old, who I will refer to as The Boy.  He keeps me super busy, but when I have time I like to cook and do other little crafty projects.  Hopefully I will have lots to share.
