Roasted Herbed Chicken with Lemon Slow Cooker Recipe From Crock-Pot

Peach surprised me by giving me a new Crockpot for Christmas!

I have been wanting/needing a new one for a while and this is the perfect kind of gift for me. Sensible and allows me to create
more of something I love - 

This is my new crockpot:

I love that it has the four typical time settings and shift to warm when done. I can put dinner together in the morning and come home to a warm meal that is cooked to perfection! It is also a great size for my family to have dinner and leftovers for Peach to take to work. (Do ya think that is why he really gave it to me - so he could have delish leftovers all the boys would be jealous of? Hmmmmm.)

Thank you Peach!

The picture they have online is not the same one as on the box - but still looks oh, so tasty!

 The mice issue made me wait a while to even get this baby out of the box because I was so obsessed preoccupied with getting the house sanitary again.

The smell of rosemary, lemon, chicken, and of course - Buttah is already tantalizing our senses.

This is what it looked like when I put it together this morning. (The chicken is hiding under all of the yummy veggies because I just used 3 chicken leg quarters as that is what I had on hand.)
 I am so excited to try it!
Addendum: After trying this recipe, there are quite a few changes that I will make next time.  I would use only chicken breast, even if it is skin on.  The meat was succulent and literally falling off of the bone - but there were a LOT of bones to deal with - tough when feeding little princesses.  Also, I will slice the lemon and layer slices directly on the chicken.  The lemon juice ended up soaking into all of the veggies ending up with an unwelcome surprise citrus kick with each veggie bite.  I will also probably layer the potatoes, then chicken, then veggies for better flavor - but that might dry out the chicken.  Overall, I will definitely try this recipe again - but to quote the bean "Mom, next time I think you should not follow the ingredient (she meant recipe) and just do it your way.  It always turns out yummy when you do it your way."  And THAT is why I will try it again.  She made me feel great and I want to prove her right. :)

That looks delicious. We'll have to give it a try. Crock-pot meals are the best.

We made this, or a variety of it, and it was delicious.

We used five chicken breasts. One lemon sliced and placed on the chicken. Three potatoes cubed. Garlic, pepper, green onions, and chicken broth. It was absolutely yummy.
