Recently my husband has been suffering from the flu and this is his first illness in years that has seen him take sick leave from work. I have been trying to make lots of homely meals and keep him fed and watered. Yesterday I decided to make this slow cooker roast chicken.

Recently my lovely Mum picked my up several whole chickens for just £1.25. These were reduced from £7 originally and were the huge chickens that you often see just before Christmas Day. I was really pleased with this and I promptly decided that I was going to stretch them as far as possible. A rubber roast chicken basically means you stretch a chicken as far as it is physically possible. There are a number of ways that you can do this, of course, but today I’m going to share my favourite.
A rubber roast chicken should ideally make at least 3 meals, depending on the amount of people that you are feeding. At the moment I am feeding two people, myself and my husband. This obviously means that our meals go further than yours may if you are feeding a larger family.
