Chicken, chicken, chicken…

It’s an all-time favorite all-year-round! It’s the one thing everyone in my family will eat without too much ado! I am sure many other families are similar.

Far be it from me to disappoint!

Besides, you may think of fall when you hear pot roast, but using a chicken and some tasty herbs turns this into a dish that works well for spring and summer too.

Use some of the leftovers to make soup the next day, or turn the leftover chicken into chicken salad.

Notes

Turn this tasty dish into a warming soup. Complete the above directions through the 8 hours of cooking. Remove the chicken from the crockpot. Get rid of the skin and pull the meat from the bones. Return the meat to the crockpot. Add 8 oz. of fully cooked noodles to the crockpot. Cook until heated through, about 30 minutes then enjoy.
