Who has time to cook dinner?


If you are anything like me, between work and all other obligations - it is hard to find the energy to make dinner! If it isn't quick and easy - then we'll end up going out or eating something not so healthy.  

Crockpot Chicken
I love using the crockpot to make dinner! Toss it in - turn it on - and voila - dinner time!

Ingredients:
whole chicken
olive oil
favorite herbs and spices (garlic or garlic powder, salt, pepper, oregano, rosemary)

1. Rinse the chicken and make sure the insides are removed. Coat the chicken with your favorite herbs/spices!

2. Coat the bottom of the crockpot with olive oil 

3. Place the seasoned chicken in the crockpot. Cook on low for 7 hours or until well cooked. 
Tip: Use a crockpot bag so that you don't have a mess to clean up after dinner! 
Heat up a veggie or a side and dinner is served! If you have another crockpot, you could toss a veggie in it! I've even thrown in some sliced and peeled apples - don't cook them too long unless you want applesauce. 


Check out Stephanie O'Dea's blog - she used her crockpot everyday for 365 days.
