Slow Cooker Sweet AND Sour Chicken

Marian Arbour


On really hot days I use the slow cooker as I like to sit outdoors when the weather is warm and the kitchen does not get too hot and I do not have to spend time stirring when all goes in the pot and I go outdoors..and supper is ready with little effort.
