Herb and Olive Oil Rubbed Roast Whole Chicken
It was another one of those days. You know, with ballet, a produce CSA pickup, raining like crazy and a cranky sick baby.
So dinner had to be fast and furious.
Enter an olive oil and herb rubbed roasted whole chicken!
There's no real measurements for this one - you just open your cupboard and dump some stuff on the chicken, rub it in and walk away.
- 6 qt. crockpot
- Whole Chicken (mine was 4 lbs. and was that sort of defrosted state you get after leaving it in the back of the fridge in the coldest area for a day)
- Several "glugs" of olive oil
- Around ten vigorous shakes from the herb bottles of your choosing. I tend to go for thyme and rosemary.
Put the chicken in the crockpot.
Dump the other ingredients over it.
Rub it all in the chicken.
Cook on low for 8-9 hours, or until chicken is thoroughly cooked.
