How To Make…
So. Darn. Good. This is the perfect meal for a busy day, parties, game day and more. The pickiest of eaters will love this chicken. My picky husband had two sandwiches for dinner and packed the leftovers for lunch at work tomorrow – this man doesn’t like to eat leftovers.
Add this simple, delicious recipe to your recipe box. This dinner saved me today after the holidays, I wasn’t in the mood to cook but didn’t want to order out. It was so nice to throw this in the slow cooker and walk away. I wasn’t surprised how great it turned out, but just how much my husband loved it. Winning recipe!!
