The Chatty Crock-Pot was on Hiatus!

Forgive me that The Chatty Crock-Pot has been empty for several weeks.

If you have been keeping up with The Chatty Momma, you know that we have a "Chef in Training" in the family, Isabella, and I have been assisting her as she creates delicious snacks and meals on her new show for kids called, "It's Snack Time!"

I hope that you have or will check it out.

Now that we have that under way and Isabella has gotten into the swing of preparing delicious treats, The Chatty Crock-Pot is back and it is on FIRE!

Up next: a delicious Roast with Veggies

Lemon Herb Roasted Chicken

(photo coming soon)

Today, for the first time I am making Lemon Herb Roasted Chicken. I'm a little nervous about washing the inside of the chicken during preparation. I actually planned on marinating the chicken all night, but couldn't get over that part.

LOL, the princess in me. (I'm learning)

Well, here is the recipe for you to get started...if you're ready for deliciousness!

3 to 4 pounds roasting chicken
1/4 cup onion, chopped
2 tablespoons butter
juice of one lemon
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon fresh parsley
1/4 teaspoon thyme
1/4 teaspoon paprika

1. Place the onion in the cavity of the chicken and rub the skin with butter.
2. Place chicken in slow cooker.
3. Squeeze lemon juice over chicken and sprinkle with remaining seasonings.
4. Cover; cook on Low 8-10 hours or High 4-5 hours.

Breakfast Cobbler Crockpot Recipe

A tasty crock pot breakfast recipe that can be made the night before in the crock pot. Wake up and breakfast is ready!

4 medium-sized apples, peeled and sliced
1 tsp cinnamon
1/4 cup honey
2 cups granola cereal
2 tablespoons butter, melted

Place the apples in the crock pot, then add in the remaining ingredients. Stir just a bit.

Cover and cook on low overnight for 8 hours or on high for 3 hours. Serve any time during the morning hours for a delicious, unique, warm breakfast.

This is a really tasty dish and it could also be used as a delicious dessert. For breakfast, I would recommend serving it with yogurt and berries. After dinner, this would be delicious with ice-cream.
