My 4 year old ate this and loved it. Ya know, the one that says everything I make is horrible!? This is one of those meals that are slow cooking all day and it smells so delicious you already know you love it. This was uh-mazing. I wish I would have discovered this recipe sooner. The chicken was so moist and the first bite was so flavorful and delicious! And I love that this recipe only has 313 calories per serving! Delicious, easy, and good for you! Score!

  1. This is delicious. Was wondering, Can I use chicken tenders instead? Idk why but i don’t like breasts. Too thick for my taste. I imagine tenders would work with adjusted cooking times but not sure how long.
