This recipe is SO delicious!!!  I got the idea from the following pin:

for blog

I made my own sauce to make it healthier, and it turned out great, and of course, because it is made in the slow cooker, it is SO easy!!!  I paired it with some quinoa, and I made a “hawaiian” salad with a spicy pineapple dressing to go along with it.  I will post that recipe in the next few days and come back and link it, because this dish with that salad makes for a perfect meal – my  husband and I both enjoyed it very much!  But today, let’s just concentrate on this chicken – SO yummy, healthy and easy!
