A warm, soothing, hot meal waiting for you when you have a "Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day" and just want to kick back in your bunny slippers and relax. =) Note: I use an old-school crock pot, the kind where the crock is not removable. ( I think it's a 3.5 qt.) I find they cook more evenly and slowly than the crock pots with the removable crocks. If you're using the removable type, adjust your cooking time to be a little less. Once chicken is cooked through, it's done. No need to cook any more.
