Christmas Eve Slow Roasted Chicken

January 1, 2013

Christmas Eve is the right time for slow roasted chicken, why you ask? That’s simple, because I named the recipe “Christmas Eve Slow Roasted Chicken” that’s why. Anyway on with the show.

You’ll need a slow cooker and some chicken (obvious right?) and you’ll need some stock (or broth if you prefer) along with thyme, rosemary twigs and sage. A small detour, my wife found this place called The Olive Scene that is basically the best place on earth. They have flavor-infused olive oils and flavor-fused balsamic vinegars in really great combinations that you simply don’t see anywhere else, at least I don’t. I got this olive oil called “butter” which doesn’t actually contain butter but tastes like, well, butter, pat that on the skin of the chicken. Put some veggies (broccoli, cauliflower are my veggies of choice) into the bottom of the slow cooker, place some celery, garlic and lemon into the cavity of the bird(s) season with the thyme and sage and place the rosemary twigs on top, cover and cook on low for about 7-8 hours. Remove the rosemary and the lemons about 1/2 way through cooking. Enjoy.
