This is extremly tender chicken smothered in a flavorful dark gravy--easy and nice serve over rice.

We really enjoyed this. The flavors from the sauce really get down deep into the chicken while slow cooking. Every bite was deliciously seasoned. I didn't brown the chicken, just threw it in the crock, other than that one step I followed the recipe completely. It even tastes good cold! Thanks!
