Slow Cooker California Chicken

I think my slow cooker might be my favorite appliance in the house. I really don’t know what I would do without it, especially during the Summer months. I try to cook in it at least once a week, sometimes as many as 3-4 times a week. So I’m going to start sharing some of my tried and true family recipes. I seem to always have chicken in the freezer so don’t be surprised if over half of them include chicken. Let’s start with this Slow Cooker California Chicken. I used all gluten free ingredients so that I would be able to eat it also.

I will share the Spanish Rice recipe with you next week.

Really important question. Do you call it a crock-pot or a slow cooker?
