Thanks for your comment. Don't forget to share!

This looks and sounds so delicious. Can you use boneless skinless breasts instead of the thighs? How much time would that add to the slow cooker time? I love dark meat, but the rest of the family loves the white meat, so I often use it the most for family dinners.

Very tasty will make again

Me too!
