Slow Cooker Chicken and Potatoes

A bit of nip in the air today. A perfect night for a roasted chicken. Not that I did not want to do much in the way of dinner prep for tonight but the slow cooker makes like so much easier.

I pinned this recipe a little while ago on the Pure Wow site. The only edit I made was to add celery and carrots to the bottom of the slow cooker. And with the drippings, I made a rather nice gravy if I do say so myself! Some steamed green beans from my sister's garden rounded this out to be a lovely Sunday supper. And we have leftover chicken which we will use in maybe a salad later this week.

My No-Fail Gravy Recipe-

2 tbsp butter
2 1/2 tbsp flour
1 cup chicken broth, homemade or canned
salt and pepper
1 1/2 tbsp chicken drippings

Melt butter in a saucepan on medium-high heat.
Add the flour until it turns brown.
Slowly mix the chicken broth with a whisk.
Whisk constantly until it thickens.
Next, add the chicken drippings and serve hot.
