  1. The first slow cooker I bought was a 4-quart oval, because it was large enough to cook a whole chicken. But I've yet to do that (two years later!). This recipe inspires me.

  2. Lydia, I haven't ever done it either and this is the first recipe that made me realize that I must try it myself as well!

  3. This looks delicious Kalyn! I'd love for you to link this up at our link party happening now at and show off your amazing talent!

  4. Jen, it's not my recipe so I don't think it would be fair for me to link it in a party. But glad you like it.
