I started this blog so my daughters could find all of our family favourite recipes in one place. It has actually grown into more than just the family favourites but also other recipes we've tried out in our kitchen. I don't like to fill up the post with alot of chatter. Sometimes there's a little story to tell, but usually I like to get right to the point. So this is for them, but hope you find some recipes that you like as well. I'll be sharing a lot of recipes, and along the way you'll find some crafty things and maybe some helpful hints too!

Slow Cooker Chicken Dinner

If you are going to be outside shovelling snow today you will work up an appetite.
You might want to get this started first.

2  1/2 lb whole chicken
2 tbsps olive oil
2 stalks celery
3 carrots
4-5 potatoes, quartered
3 minced garlic cloves
celery leaves, chopped
salt and pepper to taste

Cut celery and carrots in thirds and layer on the bottom of a slow cooker that has been sprayed with cooking oil. You can add a couple more but this allowed the heat to get underneath the chicken. It kind of reminds me of when you build a campfire and you stack the wood so that air can circulate between.

Salt and pepper the inside of the chicken and lightly brown it in a skillet with olive oil. Then sit it on top of the celery and carrots. Place the quartered potatoes around it and sprinkle with salt, pepper, minced garlic and chopped celery leaves.

Slow cook on high 3-4 hours. Check veggies. If they're a not quite fork tender, give them a little more time.

Finished shovelling? Now aren't you glad you made supper already?
