Crock Pot Roasted Chicken

Crock Pot Roasted Chicken

Roasted Chicken is one of my favorite meals. What can I say? I’m a traditionalist.

Almost every time I leave the grocery store, I’m toting a rotisserie chicken (yum!) in my bag. Roasted chicken is just such a great, easy, go-to ingredient for anything you want to make. Spaghetti? Chuck in some chicken. Salad? Everything’s better with a spot of protein. Something that actually calls for roasted chicken? Ummm…. DUH YES.

So since I’m the laziest ever, I decided to make my roasted chicken in the crock pot. Because crock pots are just too easy. And make everything delicious. I cooked my chicken overnight Sunday night and ate it for lunch and dinner yesterday. So good. Keep reading for my recipe!
