Tender Slow Cooked Roast Chicken

    8 hours 10 minutes

    This is so easy to make, and tastes wonderful. Be careful not to over cook the chicken. This is also just as tasty cold the next day in sandwiches.

    Altered ingredient amounts. Made my stuffing with garlic, onion, nuts, raisins, one slice of wholemeal bread + fresh sage. I also added in some potatoes, carrots and butternut pumpkin when there was 2 hours to go. What a fab dinner in one pot. Also put it on the timer + ready when you walk in the door... yum.  -  29 Sep 2009

    Sounds good, but no liquid? I'm just a beginner>  -  25 Feb 2014  (Review from Allrecipes UK & Ireland)
