Crock Pot Onion Chicken

When the days are still short, but feel long, when its cold outside and gets dark early all I want to do is be able to come home to a hot cooked meal. Crock Pots, as I recently discovered, are for more than just chulent, but work great for weekday dinner as well. Wake up 10 minutes earlier to throw everything in the crock pot, cook on warm, and boom! Come home from a long day at work and dinner is all ready.

This is a nice one pot meal, with potatoes, carrots, onions and of course chicken. The flavors are simple but warm you up with its homey feel. Its really perfect for any night dinner, and so easy too!

And just because its interesting too – a brief history of crock pots: The first version was invented in 1936, advertised as a potable cooking device that would cook the food evenly, a problem that existed with such devices previously. Now here is where is gets awesomely interesting: The inventor of this cooking device credits his inspiration from his grandmother, who told him about cooking a dish – chulent – in Lithuania!! How awesome is that! The thing we all use now to make chulent was invented because of chulent!

Anyway back to the chicken:
