Crock Pot Garlic Herb Chicken

A Range adaption of a popular Internet recipe, it was not only a hit, but it made six servings at a little more than $2.00 a serving (with careful shopping) and was great served with Cheesy Garlic Bread.

Whether it's just a small household  with leftovers or a family dinner, that's still pretty economical.  Use family pack fryer pieces instead of breasts, and root cellar garden veggies  it would even be cheaper.

In crock pot pour 1 and 3/4 cups good Vinaigrette (I used a Mediterranean one from Cindy's Kitchen)

Place 3-4 large chicken breasts in the dressing, spooning a little bit over the top to moisten.  Top chicken breasts with

1 and 1/2 teaspoons oregano
1  and 1/2 teaspoons basil
1/8 to 1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper (to taste)
1/4 teaspoon white pepper

On top of that place 6-8 Yukon gold potatoes cut into thirds and 5-6 carrots cut into 1 and 1/2 inch chunks.  Sprinkle two teaspoons of  minced garlic over that, a few dashes of Janes Krazy Salt (or salt and pepper) and cover and cook on high 3 to 4 hours on high or 7-8 on low.

Remove carrots with slotted spoon and toss with 1/2 teaspoon maple syrup or brown sugar.  Remove potatoes and chicken and serve, sprinkled with Parmesan and served with rolls or cheese bread.
