1 pound yam or sweet potato, cut into ½-inch sliced rounds

1 small rutabaga (about 12 ounces), cut into 1-inch slices

½ large fennel bulb (or 1 small bulb), fronds removed, cut into ½-inch lengthwise slices

1 medium red potato, cut into ½-inch sliced rounds

1 celery stalk, sliced

1 teaspoon sea or kosher salt, divided

½ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper, divided

3 fresh rosemary sprigs, divided

3 sprigs fresh thyme leaves, (stems discarded), divided

2 tablespoons olive oil, divided

1 whole chicken* (3½ to 4 pounds)


1. Put the carrot, yam, rutabaga, fennel, potato, celery, ½ teaspoon salt, ¼ teaspoon pepper, 1 sprig each rosemary and thyme and ½ tablespoon of the olive oil in the cooking pot of the Multicooker; toss together.

2. Season the chicken with the remaining salt and pepper. Coat the outside of the bird with the remaining olive oil and put the remaining herbs into the cavity of the bird. Tie the legs of the chicken together with butcher’s twine if desired. Put chicken on top of the bed of vegetables and cover.
