Slow Cooker Rustic Italian Chicken recipe & slow cooker giveaway

To say our days are busy is a huge understatement. From the time we wake in the morning till bed, we are on the run. We have two kids in elementary school and the third in PreK. After dropping kids off, I often hit the gym, then complete my daily errands. Once those are done, it is time to pick kids up and drive either to swimming or soccer, every-single day! Yup… it is not fun; but we do what we do for our kids, right? Does this mean that we no longer have time for sit-down family dinners? Of course not! Sit down family dinners is a must in our home as it is a time to talk, relax, and connect. How do I make this happen, every night? With my handy-dandy slow cooker! My newest obsession is using Red Gold Tomatoes in an assortment of recipes. One family favorite is Slow Cooker Rustic Italian Chicken. Red Gold Tomatoes all year long

Confession… I got this recipe from the Red Gold website where I have found a ton of Slow Cooker Sensation Recipes.
