Crock Pot Roast Chicken & Vegetables

Hello food lovers! Before getting to this week's recipe, I want to tell all you subscribers and regular visitors from the food carnivals about the giveaways I've got going on and coming up. This week I'm launching a wonderful giveaway from Learning Link Technologies. You'll be able to win 3 months of a 12 month ecourse that is designed to help kids who are performing below their grade level or have learning disabilities. This is an amazing course! The first 3 months of this course is a $240 value, so I'm very excited to give you the chance to win. So if you are in need, please come back and enter or tell someone you know who needs this to come and enter. I plan to have this up either Tuesday or Wednesday of this week.

Also, if you look over my notes at the top, you'll see links to my Dining Rooms Direct Giveaway. (You can win a Signature Housewares Sorrento Pitcher in your favorite color!) And then there's also a Custom Greeting Card Giveaway, where you can win 250 cards for your home or business (a $90 value).



Now onto this week's recipe. I have a great crock pot meal to share with you this week. This is one of my favorite things to cook, and it is oh-so-easy!

Recipe for Crock Pot Roast Chicken
Boneless Skinless Chicken Breasts (4-6)
Water
Dales Seasoning Sauce
Carrots, Potatoes, Onions, (or other vegetables of your choice)
Salt & Pepper to season (optional)

Directions: As you can see there's no exact recipe for this per se. It's basically a pot roast but with chicken. Just place your chicken breasts in the crock pot, along with your vegetables. (I usually use 4-6 potatoes, and a bag of baby carrots. I don't actually put the onion in mine, but if you like onions, just peel 1-3 and place them in the pot.)

Pour enough water in the crock pot to completely cover your chicken and vegetables. Then pour in a "splash" of Dale's Seasoning. (maybe 3-4 tablespoons). You can also season it with salt and pepper if you like.

The cook time depends on how old your crock pot is. My crock pot is only a couple of years old, and it takes about about 3-4 hours to cook on low, (about 2 hours on high). If you have an older crock pot, your cook time may be longer.

Tips & Suggestions:

-If you like your carrots to be extra soft/tender, you'll need to put these in the crock pot a couple of hours before you put the rest of the stuff in.

-If you're not familiar with Dale's Sauce, here's a website where you can learn more about it: Dales Seasoning Sauce. If it's not available in your area, then a good subsititute would be soy sauce, but Dale's Sauce is recommended. (I also use this seasoning for pork roasts, and we use it to marinade our hamburgers and steaks as well. It's awesome!)
