After getting started, I realized I was out of rosemary so I used some thyme and tarragon instead. Also added 1/2 an onion to the veggies. This was easy to put together in the morning and I was glad to have dinner ready after a busy day. Will make again!
This was smple, but mine also turned out dry and vegetables were over-cooked. Thought this would have made a wonderful after work meal. Chicken did make great leftovers.
Had a big roasting chicken, too big for my slow cooker. Doubled the ingredients and put it in the oven at 325°, covered with foil for the first couple hours. Then removed foil for rest of the time. Chicken was tender and delicious!
I thought the chicken turned out VERY dry and really had no flavor other than what was on the skin from the rub. I also thought the vegetables came out way to mushy. Very rarely does a 'Taste of Home' recipe not turn out great, but I won't be making this again.
