Here's the end product .. after cooking on low for about 6.5 hours. I made roasted red potatoes with a little salt and pepper and dried rosemary and olive oil...and picked up some coleslaw from KFC because that's what I was craving..heh.

Still in the crockpot and still covered with rosemary and lemons...

Still in the crockpot but sans lemons and rosemary and garlic.

On the serving plate. If you look closely you can see a few cloves of the garlic which was SO tender and so delicious. :)

On my plate with, as I mentioned, far too many roasted potatoes (but they were so GOOD! hehe) and some KFC coleslaw.

That's it for now. :)

Oh do try it. It was delicious. I'll be making it again. :) I'm going to try some of the other recipes from the same food blog. She's got tons of chicken recipes (chicken is one of my favourite foods) along with tons of other stuff.

that looks amazing. gah! I wish there was an easy way for us to do this with something vegetarian! Maybe a quorn roast. I usually do them with rosemary and pepper, but never thought about lemon and garlic as well.

I've never had a quorn roast (I had to look it up to find out what it was..hehe) .. I'm a pretty well-established omnivore..but it can't hurt to try. :)

Cool! Let us know how it turns out! :) I just had some of the leftover breast cold with crackers for lunch and it was delicious cold too. The lemon flavour seemed to come out more when it was cold. :)

Does it really improve things to skin the chicken?

Well it made it a lot less greasy/fatty than I'd imagine it might have been had I left the skin on. I also removed what fat I could once the skin was off. It was gross taking off the skin...so slimy..but I liked the result. I'm sure it'd be just fine with the skin on as well. I'm just trying to cut out any unnecessary fat in our diets and taking off the skin was a little step in that direction. :)

It's nothing complicated...the potatoes. I just wash up some red potatoes, cut them up to the size you see, toss them either in a bowl or a big ziplock bag with some olive oil, salt, pepper, and a little dried rosemary...mix it all up so they're all coated with oil and put them on a baking sheet that has sides. Into the oven at 425 degrees. I set the timer for about 20 minutes..turn them after the 20 minutes..set it for another 20 minutes..turn them a little and then bake them usually for about another 10-15 minutes..or until they're as brown as I want them. Sometimes it takes a little longer than the last 10-15 minutes to get them as brown as I want them because I like them nice and crispy on the outside..but just be careful that they don't burn.
Enjoy! I made some the night before last to go with some baked chicken and they were all gone...no leftovers. Even my picky daughter who will be 5 next week ate a bunch and she doesn't usually touch potatoes unless they're in the form of fries..heh.
Oh I use about 4 good sized red potatoes and about 3 tbsp of oil I think. I just pour it in the cap of the oil bottle..about 3 or 4 of those. I hope this is helpful.
