So my wonderful and ever-loving mother bought me a crockpot when I started the Whole30, and I’ve just now gotten a chance to use it! Hurray!
I’ve been wanting to slowcook something for a while now and was super excited to purchase a chicken a few days ago that I was gonna slowcook the shit out of today.
First, I took the crockpot out of its original packaging.
Then, I rolled up three balls of aluminum foil on the bottom of the pot. Some recipes call for this. The chicken came out delicious and juicy, and I don’t have anything to compare it to, so I would recommend the foil. I then cut up apples (!), carrots, onions and sweet potatoes and throw them on the bottom of the pan. Then I threw on the chicken, took some of the veggies and STUFFED the chicken with it, and then liberally sprinkled sea salt, ground pepper and cinnamon.
Thanks, mom! Thanks, bird!
