Sweet 'n' Tangy Chicken Recipe

“My slow cooker comes in so handy during the haying and harvest seasons,” writes Joan Airey from her farm in Rivers, Manitoba. “We’re so busy that if supper isn’t prepared before I serve lunch, it doesn’t seem to get done on time. This recipe is hearty, delicious and fuss-free.”
