  1. does this recipe use boneless chicken? I cook for a very large crowd a few times a month. I am always looking for good crock pot recipes.

    1. Hi Margo,
      Yes, for this recipe, boneless chicken was used, however, you could by all means use on the bone chicken. Both would work well.

      I hope this helps and please do ask if you need any more help!

  2. This would be amazing served over Moroccan cous cous. The cous cous would absorb some of those amazing juices in the bottom of the crockpot. I am definitely making this tonight. Great recipe Peggy!
