It’s back! I still don’t have a functional kitchen, but I do need to feed my family. Which led to a bit of recipe research, I was looking for something I could make with no stove. All my cookbooks are still in boxes, but I found a couple of interesting slow cooker recipes on Pinterest. Which lead me to dig out my crock pot and head to the grocery store. The recipe I found for this week was for Slow Cooker Lemon Garlic Chicken.
I gathered the recipe’s supplies – a whole chicken, some fresh rosemary, 4 lemons, and 3 heads of garlic. Then I gathered the items I was going to use to supplement the meal – small read potatoes and white wine.
Once I had everything together, I followed the instructions from the recipe. I cut up the lemons and put some in the bottom of the crock pot.
Then I halved two of the heads of garlic, and put them into the crock pot.
Then I added several sprigs of fresh rosemary.
Once that was all in the crock pot, I washed the chicken and seasoned it with salt and cracked black pepper. I also put half a lemon and half a head of garlic into the cavity of the chicken. Once it was stuffed I put it into the crock pot.
Then I modified the recipe slightly by cutting up a bunch of small red potatoes and adding those to the pot.
Along with some more rosemary and the rest of the lemons.
Then I added a 1/2 cup of white wine, set the crock pot to low and left it alone for 6 hours. So, while I wasn’t looking someone turned the heat up and the lemon and garlic on the bottom burned and gave the chicken and potatoes a bad flavor. I am going to have to try the recipe again, and make sure it was just the unforeseen temperature change that made the meal taste off, because it came out looking great.
