Slow Cooker – Cuban Chicken

Lady Behind The Curtain - Slow Cooker Cuban Chicken

Enough to feed a crowd or freeze for later.  This recipe offers many layers of flavor.  Serve along side corn tortillas, brown rice and pinto beans.  I served this dish like a burrito bowl.  Starting with a layer of rice then beans and chicken.  So delicious!
