Slow Cooker Chicken and Red Potatoes

Oh, how we loved this dish!  It’s simple, hearty and so filling.  The flavors are absolutely amazing too.  What I really liked was that the carrots retained the crunch, which is always a plus for me (I’m not a big fan of mushy carrots).  The potatoes were nice and tender, and the chicken falls off the bone.  The gravy is also delicious.  Yes, we absolutely loved this one.  Enjoy!
