For a lazy Sunday
Toss the vegetables in a slow cooker, top with the seasoned chicken and pour in just 1 cup broth or wine. Cook on LOW heat for 7-8 hours or until everything is meltingly tender.
Chunks of celery, parsnip, or rutabaga would be welcome partners with the potatoes.
For a luscious gravy, remove the chicken and vegetables to a serving platter. Return the roasting pan to the stovetop. Squeeze the tender garlic cloves into the pan juices and thicken the whole thing with a cornstarch slurry or a beurre manié, which is equal parts softened butter and flour, mashed together and whisked into the hot cooking juices.
