Rated 5 out of 5 by from So Easy & Delicious! This recipe is a keeper! Easy, delicious & even better left over the next day for lunch. However, after a friend made it first & thought it to be somewhat bland, I made it using my Creating Magic batch chicken from the freezer (thawed) & substituted one can of the tomatoes with Rotel. Hold the OO & GG & season to taste. Since the chicken already cooked, I added it to the crockpot about 1.5 hours before dinner.
