Sometimes, I can be pretty obsessed with my slow cooker. I love making big batches of delicious meals and then freezing half to enjoy later. It helps me save time and my family gets to enjoy a large variety of tasty dinners!
I originally saw this recipe while I was watching How Jen Does It on YouTube. She has some really amazing slow cooker recipes and this one really stuck out for me.
I've changed a couple of things in her recipe based on my family's preferences and simplifying it to make it an even quicker dinner time option.
A little tip when cooking in your slow cooker, spray it with nonstick spray first so that things don't stick. Nothings worse than saving the time cooking only to find yourself spending considerable time scrubbing over the sink after.
I suggest serving this chicken over rice and topping it with sour cream and perhaps a little shredded cheese. You can use brown or white rice, whichever you prefer.
