Recipe Friday: Chicken in a Pot

"As for those grapefruit and buttermilk diets, I'll take roast chicken and dumplings." Hattie MacDaniel

My Comfort Food series continues here on Recipe Friday with a yummy, easy to prepare crock pot chicken!  This recipe is homey and simple, and so delicious, even my kids like it.  Because of the paprika, they call it chicken with spots!

I've adapted this from my GE Slow Cooker Recipe Book, the one that came with my crock pot. Hope you like it!

Chicken in a Pot 

1 16 oz. pack frozen mixed veggies
1 1.5 oz. envelope beef stroganoff sauce mix
1 5-7 lb whole chicken
1 t salt
1 t pepper
2 t paprika
2 t garlic powder
2 t onion powder

Combine vegetables and sauce mix in the crock pot. Combine salt, pepper, onion powder, garlic powder and paprika.  Rub seasonings into chicken.  Place chicken in crock over vegetables.  Cover and cook on low 8 hours.  Serve with rice and a green salad.  Makes 4 servings.

Ooh, sounds lovely! I did a chicken all-in-one recipe last night.

Brown an onion, a couple of garlic cloves and a whole chicken in a casserole dish. Add leeks, carrots, potatoes, tomatoes, stock and a splash of white wine. Pop into oven on a low-ish heat for 1 1/2 hours....yummy!

Your paprika sounds good....I'll spice up the next one! Have a lovely weekend.

I LOVE chicken. Since I started eating meats, a clean chicken is my favorite. And, I really like that Coleman uncured bacon. Which, I have on hand. Home from work and the market and I don't have to anywhere all weekend. Ah ... Have a great weekend, Maria. Eat well.
