An Easy Meal For One or Five?!

Now that the weather is marvelous, you don’t want to be slaving away in the kitchen to make nutritious meals, whether for just you or for a big family. And you want your meals to have some lean protein for fuel and lots of veggies for nutrition. So you can prep this crock-pot meal and head out for some wine on the porch J.

Slow Cooker Chicken Pot Roast           


  • 1 large roasting chicken
  • 2 teaspoons olive oil
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 2 teaspoons fresh thyme
  • 1 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • Kosher or sea salt to taste
  • 2 celery stalks
  • ¼ cup water
  • 1 cup baby carrots
  • 2 medium potatoes (or sweet potatoes), cut into 1” cubes


Rinse and pat dry the chicken. Rub the outside with olive oil first, then combine spices and rub all over the chicken. Place the minced garlic into the cavity, along with a bit more salt and pepper. Add your water to a slow cooker, and then the celery. Now, place the chicken in breast-side up. Add carrots and potatoes around the chicken. Cover, then cook on low 4 to 6 hours or until the chicken’s internal temperature Is 165 degrees and the veggies are tender. Use a meat thermometer to check if the chicken is done, or pierce with a fork, making sure the juices run clear.

There’s only 178 calories per serving (makes six servings). It also has 10 grams of protein and 3 grams of fiber. The potatoes contain several vitamins, as do the carrots, and the spices and water add lots of natural flavoring without extra calories!
