Pot Chicken

2 tbl. margarine
2 tbl. olive oil
1 whole chicken
Potatoes, cubed
Carrot sticks
Sliced onions
3 chicken bouillon cubes
2 cups boiling water
dried oregano, basil, thyme and freshly ground pepper, to taste


Preheat oven to 325 F.

In a large oven-proof deep roaster type pot, melt margarine with olive oil. In this, brown a whole chicken (fryer will do fine), turning often and keeping it moving to prevent sticking. When brownish, remove from heat.

Add potatoes, carrot sticks, and
sliced onions, alternating layers around chicken and a bit over it to almost cover about 3/4 of the chicken.

Dissolve chicken cubes boiling water and pour over all.

Then, liberally sprinkle with dried oregano , dried basil , dried thyme , and freshly ground pepper

Put lid on, and cook in 325 oven for about 1 1/2 hours.
