Rosemary-Garlic Chicken Leg Quarters

Great slow cooker recipe to make when you want to spend a couple of hours doing yard work, take a break, and then spend another couple of hours doing something else. Takes 4 hours in the slow cooker, but there is prep beforehand and an addition after 2 hours.....so not something you can do while you are away from home.
