    No-worries Crock Pot Chicken

    This is so easy it almost makes itself.  I did not list clear amounts in the ingredients because it all depends upon how large a crock pot you have.  Use whatever chicken part(s) happen to be on sale; I personally prefer thighs or leg quarters.  In the same vein, this works...

    Curried Albacore Tuna over noodles
