Crock Pot Help!

Hey everyone,


I was wanting to make this chicken recipe for supper tonight, but just realized I don't have a roasting pan to cook it in(Dangit!!). Would it be the same if I just did it in my crock pot? If so, can I do it on High and have it still only take 1 1/2 - 2 hours?

Here's the recipe i'm talking about:

Scott's Kitchen: Hamersley's Roast Chicken with Potatoes and Onions

I don't think it would be quite the same, nor quite as good as roasted in the oven.

Don't you have a large glass or ceramic casserole that would hold the chicken? A lasagna dish? A big cake pan? A neighbor?

Hm, I have a glass lasagna dish, I think 13x9 or something, I would have to cover it with foil I guess, so you think that would work alright?

Perfect! The foil is optional -- it might make cleanup a bit easier, but glass pans are pretty easy to clean. Just don't try making the graving in a glass pan -- transfer the juices to a large sauce pan or small frying pan. Glass, even Pyrex, can break if you put it on the direct heat of the stove.

That's one big mama chicken! The recipe calls for a 3 pounder, but that looks like 5 or 6 pounds to me. Not a problem, but to may take a little more time to cook.

Well... about the gravy. I kinda messed up. You know how it said to mix the mustard and juice from half a lemon and seasonings? It said to rub on the chicken, then put the reserved lemon half inside the cavity.... Well, I accidently squeezed the other lemon half inside the cavity instead... So when I go to make the gravy/juice do you think I can still just add the 1/2 cup of water and see what happens?..... lol

WAIT! The foil, if you use it, goes in the BOTTOM of the pan. You don't want to cover the chicken with foil while it's roasting.

Yeah, not a problem. Just throw the lemon rind in the cavity. It should have plenty of lemon flavor, and the water should be OK. Or use a little white wine.
