Now that we are past the Halloween and Sandy rush, my mind has shifted to comfort food. I have had my crockpot out almost every night. A few months ago, I tried the oven version of Jamie Oliver’s Perfect Roasted Chicken. All I can say about this recipe is that it is perfect. You MUST try it if you haven’t already.
This week I tried the same recipe in my crockpot to see if it would work.
The roasted veggies weren’t as good as the oven, but still good. The chicken was just as FABULOUS! Of course, I used a free range chicken, which can get expensive. So I used the bones and skin to make my chicken broth, making a second meal of chicken soup. This used up the rest of the organic celery, carrots and onions too. I only added two grilled free range chicken breasts because my family prefers white meat in soup.
This gave us dinner for 3 nights total (for a family of 3), making the $8.00 free range chicken well worth the cost. Thank you, Jamie Oliver for inspiring me and families everywhere with your amazing dishes!
What’s in your crockpot as the weather grows cooler?
