Recipe: Crock Pot Chicken in a Pot

a few carrots, sliced
a few celery stalks, sliced in 1-inch pieces
a few onions, sliced
a whole chicken
1/2-1 c water (see note)

1.  Place carrots, celery, onions in bottom of Crock Pot.

2.  Place chicken on top of vegetables. 

3.  Cover chicken with seasoning to taste.

4.  Pour water over chicken.  (If cooking on low, use 1/2 c of water.  If cooking on high, use 1 c.)

5.  Cook on low for 8 to 10 hours or on high for 3-1/2 to 5 hours.

Notes: I'm not that fond of basil, so I used salt, pepper, and a few other random seasonings.  I broke down the chicken and then reserved the resulting broth and veggies to make chicken noodle soup.

  1. I love thyme with chicken. We have a pot roast in the oven today, but the chicken sounds great! I might make some chicken stew with dumplings next weekend.
