Slow cooker Chicken Cassoulet

Submitted by: DAKOTANMISTY

Introduction

I found this recipe in Tosca Reno's Eat Clean Diet Cookbook. I don't cook with tomatoes, so I did not use the sun dried tomatoes. They are listed in the recipe ingredients and directions, but not included in the calorie count. I found this recipe in Tosca Reno's Eat Clean Diet Cookbook.
