Food Safety

Before you start, wash all surfaces and your hands with soap and warm water, and remember to wash your hands, utensils and cutting boards after they touch raw meat or eggs. Avoid cross-contamination by using a different cutting board for your meat and other ingredients. Make sure you’re cooking to safe temperatures and chilling any leftovers within two hours.

  1. In a slow cooker, mix together potatoes, carrots and onion with ¼ cup (60 mL) of the poultry gravy mix.

  2. Rub the remaining ¼ cup (60 mL) of poultry gravy mix all over the chicken, including under the skin.

  5. Slice the chicken and serve with the gravy and vegetables. Garnish with diced chives.
