I came up with this dish one day while I was looking in the pantry. There on the shelf was a jar of Paul Newman's Vodka Sauce and my mind started to create. I had taken some chicken out of the freezer and the crockpot out. I also spotted a can of Snappy Tom mix. Enjoy and let me know what you think. It can also be cooked in a 9x13 baking dish in the oven at 400 degrees for and hour. Enjoy and letme know what you think.
