The chicken came out very tender and juicy. I added a little more chicken broth to this. My crockpot is huge and a 1/4 cup of broth was not enough to simmer these chicken breasts in. I put in about a cup and was happy with the extra sauce.
This was very good and easy to make. My family loved it. My husband did say a little less garlic next time. Was fine with me but next time will cut the garlic in half for hubby. Worth trying!!!!!
