Rosemary Chicken with White Beans
"With a full-time job and active 5-year-old, I’m known as the “Crock-Pot Queen” in my family," laughs Sharon Johannes in Ashley, Illinois. "I use my slow cookers at least twice a week…sometimes have two or three going at once with different dishes. I’ve made this recipe for years and, after making a few tweaks, it’s become a treasured favorite."
