My aunt made this recipe and said that it cooked much quicker in the slow cooker than in the recipe so make sure you check your chicken early! The picture on this recipe is her final result. She said it was totally delicious and the chicken was so perfectly cooked!

I am going to make this soon once I get my crock pot back in action!
