I have a lot of love for my slow cooker. My crock pot. It makes my life so much easier!! Each Thursday during the Fall and Winter The Centsible Family will showcase a slow cooker (crock-pot) recipe that one of the Mavens of Money have tried and tasted. By sharing we hope you will be able to save a little time during the week as we all know saving time is just as valuable as saving money. And you will be able to enjoy a hot meal at the end of your day.
This week’s recipe is Chicken Cacciatore by Mackenzie at The Centsible Family that is perfect for healthy, well rounded meal. Prep time should be about 15 minutes and will cook for six hours and yield about 8 servings.
