Crockpot Italian Chicken

I have to sadly admit that it is a rare thing these days for all of us to sit down at the table together for dinner.  Everyone always told me as my kids got bigger life would get crazier.  As a wife of a dental student with 3 little kids, that was hard to believe.  But fast forward 10 years and I now know what they meant.  We are in the thick of it! The kids are involved in a million different things, homework, Mike’s work and social events have really taken a toll on our dinner time together.  I wouldn’t choose it this way for sure, but I have realized that this is just how it is going to be for the next few years.  So on the nights that a miracle happens and we are all home at the same time for a meal I can’t help but be excited!

Last night I made one of our family favorites! It’s an easy crockpot italian chicken.  The ingredients are simple, but when combined make a delicious combination.  I got this recipe years ago from my sister-in-law and every time I make it my family loves it.  And who doesn’t love a quick, easy, gourmet looking meal that everyone enjoys.Crockpot Italian Chicken
