I have been meaning to make a slow cooker roasted chicken for a while, like for years. It’s one of those things that I never remember ahead of time when I’m planning dinner or going grocery shopping, so it never gets done. As it turns out, it doesn’t take all day to cook, so you can even pick up a whole chicken and a few other ingredients at lunchtime, and your chicken can be on your table for dinner. Do you grow vegetables or herbs in your garden? We have a garden full of pretty, low-maintenance plants, but I haven’t had much luck with growing anything edible because I am too busy and forgetful to properly care for the plants. (You know who is amazing at gardening? Pamela at Brooklyn Farm Girl.) When I was shopping for this slow cooker roasted chicken, I almost bought rosemary. Then I remembered, “Hey, wait! I have rosemary growing like CRAZY in my yard!” Since rosemary is a hearty shrub, it is the one edible plant I can actually grow. Maybe I should start putting it in everything… This slow cooker roasted chicken is flavorful and tender, and you won’t believe how good your house will smell while it’s cooking! I’m sure you could use the carcass to make a great stock. (Nothing sounds more appetizing than the word carcass, am I right?) I didn’t because of weariness, but you should go for it and report back about how it turns out!
