Deliciously Tender Crockpot Chicken and Sauce

Janie Massey


I have used this recipe, which I adapted from a crockpot cookbook from over 40 years ago that I no longer have.
It was definitely a family favorite that I still make for Hubby and I. Since my four children left the nest, this serves us for a couple of meals and the leftovers can go into a soup. Easy-peasy and Yummy ;-)
