Okay guys....summertime is comin' and you know what that means?? Yep...time to rock the crock pot! After you combine all the seasonings for this yummy chicken and massage it into your bird, your crock pot will magically turn this into something super flavorful. The ease of it all is incredible for the result you get. Ladle a little of the cooked juice over the sliced meat for extra flavor!
