Slow Cooker Pomegranate Chicken



I don't know about you, but I LOVE crock pot recipes!  Here is a great chicken recipe that I came across from skinnyms.com. My family really liked it and I was able to use the leftovers to make a delicious salad for lunch the following day! You could also use the leftovers in a 100% whole wheat tortilla.  Give it a try and let me know what you think!
