Tuscan-Style Chicken Recipe

Tuscan-Style Chicken Recipe

I found this Italian-style chicken recipe in a magazine and tweaked it to my family's tastes. I have taken it to potlucks and served it at dinner parties and no one ever guesses that it's made in the slow cooker. I serve this chicken entree with crusty bread and spinach salad with lemon vinaigrette.—Mary Watkins, Little Elm, Texas
