And I'm throwing this tip in for free...
When we cook whole chickens in the roaster, we cook 2 at a time. One isn't quite enough, and we can use the leftover in other recipes. So, after supper the other night, DH tried something new. He put about 3 cups of rice into the chicken stock that was in the roaster, and left it on 250 degrees for about 2 hours. I had heard mixed reviews about putting rice in a crock pot--but this is a roaster (which I got on clearance at Target after Thanksgiving/Christmas, a couple of years ago).
After stirring in some spices, and adding the leftover chicken--VIOLA!!
We had it the following night, with a green salad. It made a great meal, was easy, and cheap!!
