Oh, wow! Supper tonight was super! I was perusing the spice aisle the other day and discovered that McCormick’s makes a spice for Herbes de Provence Roasted Chicken and Potatoes.

Did you know that herbes de Provence contains rosemary, chervil, marjoram, thyme, savory and lavender?  Very cool.  We ate fancy French food tonight and it was delish.  I made a couple of changes to the recipe, the main one being that I cooked it in the crock pot

Ingredients:

One roasting chicken – a Smart Chicken!
