My career as a teacher is pretty demanding, and never is that more true than during the first week of school. But after an entire summer of eating really nourishing foods, I'm determined not to let work get in the way of good nutrition! After all, if I don't feed myself properly, I won't be very effective as a teacher anyway.
Still, there will be nights when I get home from work that the last thing on my mind will be cooking a full meal. Enter this awesome Roast Chicken in a Crock Pot.

I had a whole chicken that I had gotten from my parents' farm and was just keeping frozen in the freezer until I was ready to use it. I've never really cooked a whole chicken before, and was a little worried that I wouldn't know what to do with it all. However, I've realized that there are a lot of things you can do with a roast chicken, such as serving it with vegetables, chopping it up for chicken salad, adding it to soups, and of course, making chicken broth with it. You'll probably see some of those recipes in the next few posts.
Like any other crock pot recipe, it's really easy to do: simply assemble the ingredients, turn it on to low, and let it cook slowly for about 6 hours. Here's how I made this flavourful, moist, roast chicken, with farm fresh potatoes, celery, carrots, and onion.

Note: My chicken was frozen, so the night before I set it in the fridge to defrost a little.
