– Be sure to remove the skin from the chicken before cooking. The skin will get rubbery and won’t add anything positive to the dish.

– Cut the vegetables into bite-sized pieces so they cook evenly and don’t get mushy.

– Season the chicken and vegetables with salt and pepper before adding them to the slow cooker. This will help them to retain their flavor during cooking.

– Cook on low for 6-8 hours or on high for 3-4 hours, until the chicken is cooked through and tender.

Following these tips will help you create a flavorful, healthy dish that everyone will love. Give it a try next time you’re looking for an easy meal!

Conclusion & Recipe:

When it’s time to eat, serve the chicken over some cooked rice or quinoa and top with fresh parsley. I like to add a little extra lemon juice to my plate as well. Enjoy!
