Puerto Rican Chicken in Green Sauce

READY IN: 4hrs 25mins
Recipe by kitchenslave03

Slow cooker recipe from Food and Wine. Haven't tried it yet, but it has all the flavors I love. You could use all drumsticks or all thighs. The author does not recommend breasts due to the dryness factor. Sounds like it would be good topped with fresh cilantro (never too much cilantro for me) and sliced scallions.
