Tasty, but seemed like too much sauce for the amount of chicken.

Yum!! I literally threw these ingredients in the crock-pot in about 15 minutes. My son made the rice while I was on my way home from work. i paired it with the recommended Pinot Grigio and bourbon baked beans on the side. I am one happy camper right now.
