Click here to get this easy recipe that I've made dozens of times. Still remains one of my faves.
This had excellent flavor! I loved it and so did Greg. The cooktime was WAY too long though (Note: I've since changed the cooktimes in the above recipe). I noticed and switched it to warm, luckily. It is really important to watch the time if you are using chicken breasts. The boneless, skinless chicken breasts cook fast and they dry out and get tough if they are left in the crockpot too long. For crockpot cooking, I prefer the chicken thighs and bone-in chicken. It stays moist and is very tender when serving. Before I started cooking this year I don't think I had ever bought bone-in chicken or anything other than the frozen boneless, skinless chicken breasts. As I have expanded my recipes and noticed sales at grocery stores, I have switched to using other cuts of chicken and have loved them. I highly recommend trying something new if you haven't in a long time. It can also be a lot less expensive, as well. Anyhow, if you use chicken thighs for this recipe I give it 5 stars. If you use chicken breasts I give it 4 stars.
