Easy Slow Cooker Roasted Chicken
Do you ever have one of those days where you look in the freezer and refrigerator and you have NO IDEA what to make for dinner? Well, that’s where this Easy Slow Cooker Chicken Pot Roast recipe comes in to rescue the day. I opened my refrigerator to find some not-so-fresh carrots and squash, then I opened my pantry (CANTRY…the place where you store all your delicious canned vegetables!), noticed I had canned green beans with mushrooms, canned carrots, and some canned potatoes. Sounds like the perfect start to dinner to me!
I took out the chicken that has been hanging out in my deep freezer this morning, and my dinner dilemma was well on the way to being solved.
I grabbed some seasonings from my cabinet, seasoned my chicken, tossed it into the crockpot and loaded on the canned veggies!
The result was mouth-watering, plus my house smelled fantastic all day 🙂
