Somedays, I made breakfast, lunch and dinner all at the same time. It's not an ideal situation but their are days when our schedule just demands it. We had one of these days recently.
I made eggs and toast for breakfast, packed a picnic lunch to eat at a wrestling match and put a chicken in the crock pot for dinner - all before 9:00 AM. In some ways it's kind of nice to have all the cooking out of the way before we got busy with our activities for the day.
I created this super simple recipe based on the ingredients that I had in my pantry, my refrigerator and herbs that were growing in my herb pots at the time. Feel free to substitute your favorite herbs and flavors to make your own delicious chicken.
Lemon Crock Pot Chicken
1/2 pound small white potatoes, cubed
1 sweet potato, cubed
baby carrots or 1 large carrot, peeled and sliced into 1" pieces
1 head of garlic, sliced in half
1 Tablespoon fresh parsley
1 Tablespoon fresh rosemary
1 Tablespoon fresh thyme
1 roasting chicken
I think that I like this crock pot to oven method. The chicken came out juicy and delicious and the skin was nice and crispy.
As for the day's activities - they turned out pretty well too. These are pictures from one of the wrestling tournaments that we were at last weekend.
