P.S. I used the crockpot since I knew I was going to be in and out today.
I browned the chicken in my cast iron skillet, then followed the recipe instructions, using the crockpot instead of a casserole dish. I also added the squash. I cooked on low for about 5-1/2 hours. It was just as good, if not better, than if baked in the oven.
Served over homemade noodles with a green salad and garlic bread made from my homemade Italian loaf.
