    PaulaG's Note:

    This recipe was adapted from The Gourmet Slow Cooker cookbook, hence the name. If cooked for 4 hours using bone-in chicken breasts, the chicken is tender, moist and on the bone. Serve this over a bed of saffron rice for a wonderful, flavorful meal.

      This was pretty good. I marinated the chicken overnight. I didn't have any saffron but I threw in a saffron rice mix that I had. I don't care fo cinnamom and used allspice instead. And I used walla walla's instead of the general yellow onions as well as peaches instead of apricots since that's what I had. A nice combination of flavors and it was great to sit down to a hot meal as cold as it's gotten.

      This was good. I think it would have been even better if I had marinated the chicken first.
