Miss in the kitchen – Savory Citrus Chicken
I use my slow cooker a lot during the summer. It is the ideal way to cook supper without heating up the house, and it does all the work for you on busy days. This recipe requires just a few ingredients, and the results are tender, juicy and flavorful chicken. It’s great served with mashed potatoes and a garden fresh salad.
