Harvest Chicken with Walnut Gremolata Recipe

Publisher Photo
"This original recipe is based on a classic veal or lamb dish but made more simply in the slow cooker. To lighten it up, I used fat-free chicken broth and removed the skin and excess fat from the chicken legs. It's an elegant complete dinner that always gets compliments."
