Slow Cooker French Provencal Chicken
This is a simple, easy, French-inspired chicken dish that will make you feel like you are in the French countryside, but your slow cooker did all the work! I love to serve this with a simple side of sautรฉed or steamed green beans and roasted new potatoes. Bon Apetit!

    Recipe Notes

    Bone-in chicken pieces do well in this recipe, but you may need to increase the cooking time.

    I like to serve with rice instead of potatoes to soak up the sauce. A high quality loaf of French bread would be equally effective at sopping up the bright French flavors.
