I started a chicken in the crock pot this afternoon around noon and will let it go overnight until noon tomorrow. Then I will can the chicken stock and use the chicken to make a pot load of chicken and dumplings. Right now my kitchen smells so good. I love it. I didn't add much water to the crock pot just started it cooking on low and the juices from the bird itself are what is now filling the crock pot. Hopefully it will taste as good as it looks.
