crock-pot chicken

4 Servings
Carrots, sliced
Onion, quartered
Celery stalks w/leaves cut in 1-inch pieces
Mushrooms, med size, sliced
Garlic cloves coarsely chopped
2 teaspoons Salt
½ teaspoon Black pepper
1 teaspoon Basil leaves
½ cup Water, chicken broth, or white wine
Whole chicken, about 3 lbs

Put carrots, celery, and mushrooms in bottom of crock-pot. Place whole chicken on top. Place onions and garlic around chicken, placing some of each in cavity of the chicken. Top with the salt, pepper, and liquid. Sprinkle the basil over the chicken. Cover and cook on LOW for 8 to 10 hours (using HIGH, 3½ to 5 hours using 1 cup liquid).

Remove chicken and veggies. I serve this with rice, but you could also add some potatoes in the crock- pot (if you have room) and that'll work, too. FOR A GRAVY, I've used 4 tb of flour in the "drippings" and used a hand blender (it came out nicely)... Or you can use 1 can of Cream of Mushroom soup blended into the "drippings."
