I am a Mombassador for Nello's! Nello's sauces are amazing and it is so much fun to be able to experiment and try new things with the sauces. This recipe was effortless. I cooked it on low in a crock pot and the chicken came out super tender and flavorful. The sauce seeped into the chicken and made it taste so yummy. This recipe would be perfect for a holiday dinner or for a quick weekday dinner. All you need to do it throw all of the ingredients into a crock pot and turn it on!
