    We are big fans of roasted chicken here. I stuff it with lemons, garlic, and butter and season it outside with butter, salt, pepper, garlic powder, and whatever else I'm in the mood for. I roast at 425 in a large shallow roasting pan surrounded by cut up potatoes, carrots, celery, onion, garlic, (toss in some olive oil, first) and lemon quarters (squeezed over the top of chicken and veg then just added for flavor.)

    This taught me how to roast a chicken (or anything else) with fantastic results:Roasting: A Simple Art: Barbara Kafka, Maria Robledo: 9780688131357: Amazon.com: Books

    I bought a chicken

    I have cooked the chicken.
    It is dry, but it is edible.

    Lol you are right! I made myself a little buffalo ranch and ate half the chicken. DS loved it. He said it was just like rotisserie chicken. What a teachers pet!

    I threw the giblets and extra bones we didn't eat off of in with some carrots and celery to cook overnight. I didn't like the chicken smell all day, but I'm into the stock scent. I want to out the crock pot in my bedroom overnight.

    TFZ, I found a combination crock pot pressure cooker on Amazon the other day, and now I want one. I just have to convince my husband I will use it enough to make it worth dropping $100 on it... Maybe he'll buy it if I promise to do whole chickens in it weekly. :-)

    I love crock-potting because it's so easy, but it takes so LONG!!!

    That sounds cool. Lol for a hundred bucks you'd be making chickens forever for it to even out! DH got home last night and had some late. He was like, "So it's kind of like getting a rotisserie chicken?" Yes but I save a dollarrrrrrrr! I didn't mind the time. I put it in before I had coffee, so I can't really remember that part. Making dinner only took ten minutes. I'm into that.

    Next time I will think more about it like ML said - what will I use it for? But I'll def be doing this once a week.

    Awww TFZ I saw this recipe and thought of you.

    Something to do with a whole chicken... she makes a big deal over how revolutionary this is.

    I like any recipe that notes the evil-ness of Miracle Whip.
    I've been doing really good with my chickens. I've made one every week and make broth with the leftover bits. We've just been eating it plain. DS calls it rotisserie chicken.
