Roll chicken in the thyme so that it is coated on both sides. Place chicken in the bottom of the slow cooker and sprinkle lightly with black pepper. In a skillet over the stovetop, combine water, Universal Sauce, and bouillon. Bring to a slow boil over medium heat and then let simmer for about 10 minutes. Stir in the dijon mustard. Pour the sauce over the chicken. Cook on LOW for 4 hours or on HIGH for 2 hours.
I am so proud of this dish. It is so rewarding when I create something that actually works. I loved this. The thyme and dijon were complimentary and the creaminess of the Shirley J Universal sauce was perfect. I give this 5 stars. Make sure not to overcook the chicken.
