Back Story

Whole chicken can be a healthy, deliciousl and economical food when prepared correctly. I was exploring healthy options for  whole chicken and came across a recipe for Baked Slow Cooker Chicken Recipe – Allrecipes.com. This recipe inspired a casual yet special Sunday night chicken dinner with friends. The original plan was to follow the recipe, but we felt creative and decided to go with our own blend of spices. Shane used a blend of Kosher Salt, Pepper, Mrs. Dash and Sezon Spice pack. She stuffed the cavity of the chicken with half and onion. We added fresh baby carrots and chopped celery when there was only 1 hour left to cook. For side dishes we had Shane’s special spicy cabbage and Sol’s delicious spicy Basmati rice and beans. We also had Pillsbury crescent rolls.

For dessert our special guest, Tony, brought a very delicious lemon pound cake that his mother baked. We also had the last of the pumpkin spice cupcakes. It was a wonderful evening. Here are the highlights!
