    ratherbeswimmin''s Note:

    A nontraditional slow cooker recipe. Instead of pastry crust, uses a mashed potato crust. Works better if you have two slow cookers and can make the crust and the filling simultaneously.

      Talk about comfort, this is it! I used sour cream, as I think it has more flavor than half and half. I loved the potato crust, and it reminded me a lot of Sheppard's pie. The chicken mixture was very good and we really loved the mix of flavors! We will have this again!
