Step 7. Transfer chicken and all liquid into slow cooker.

Step 8. Cook on high for 3-4 hours.

Food Allergies-

Gluten Free– All of my recipes are gluten free. My husband has celiac disease, which means he is allergic to gluten.

Bouillon is commonly not gluten free. You need to make sure to get a bouillon that is certified gluten free. Herbox granulated bouillon is the one I use.

Need A New Crock Pot?

My favorite is this Crock Pot 7 quart Programmable Slow Cooker. First and foremost, I love being able to set the timer in case I’m not home when the food is finished cooking and it just switches to warm. Plus you can lock the lid and just carry it to a party. Not only is it easy to carry but also you will never lose another Tupperware or serving dish again at a potluck party!
