Bill isn't too interested in food and he has always been difficult about eating, but he hasn't had any interest for awhile. I discovered that he LOVES the gelled stock of a chicken made in a slow cooker, so now we have slow cooked chicken once a week for Bill's sake. : )
So, this leads me to; What's for Dinner?
I have a whole chicken in the slow cooker. I rub a mixture of coarse salt, dried thyme, oregano and ground black pepper under the skin of the breast. I also place several whole garlic cloves and coarsely chopped onion under the skin. I rub the remainder of the herb mixture over the chicken and stuff the cavity with the leaf end of celery, a couple of garlic cloves and some onion. Put water into the slow cooker, I go about 1/4 up the chicken. Today I put celery cut into large pieces, thickly chopped carrots and onion over the chicken. I leave it cook for about 8 hours on low. We will have the chicken with rice tossed with some butter and lemon pepper and a salad of romaine hearts and one of my last german striped tomatoes drizzled with a purchased poppy seed dressing.
All of this just so Bill can have his stock over his food! Every week I'll come up with a different variation of the 'Bill Chicken'. The sacrifices we make for our pets.
