Family Chicken Recipe

"MY MOTHER-IN-LAW said she devised this recipe when her children were growing up and schedules were hectic. It was a favorite Sunday dish because it could be cooking while the family was at church. When they came home, it didn't take long to finish the preparations and put dinner on the table."

MY REVIEW

This recipe is my husband's favorite way to enjoy chicken. It's easy to prepare and cooks without fuss in the slow cooker. Chicken is always tender and juicy. I serve it with mashed potatoes and peas.

This is an excellent dish! Loved it ... so easy and tastes so good. Cooked up some rice and served it with the gravy/chicken leftovers and was able to stretch it into another meal. Thanks for the recipe.
