This is so easy and my kids love it--even eating veggies. Easy to change based on what you have on hand.

You know, this was really good! I made it because I had everything on hand and didn't feel like going to the store, and I was really surprised, it just seems so basic, but the flavor was great!! I served it with mashed potatoes and I did thicken the broth with the soup... YUMMY! thanks! I will make this again for sure!

This was super! Everyone loved it, including the kids. They all especially raved about the potatoes and onions. I did not have carrots and because I used a six pound chicken, there was no room around it to put in the green beans...but I served the chicken and potatoes with a salad and it worked out just fine. Did not make the gravy, but the chicken was so moist, for the first time we actually did not need gravy. This took 5 hours on low in my insane crock pot (Rival 6 1/2 qt.), so it was done much sooner than expected...a good thing around here :) Thanks for sharing...I definitely did not want to use the oven in this heat to roast a chicken!
