    This was delicious and super easy! The kids and hubby were loving the smell coming from the crockpot all day, and we ended up having it with the in-laws (who were impressed as well!)

    For UK users used a Knorr Stock pot made up with 1/2 pint of water in place of the chicken broth.
    Also added some red pepper
    Super easy and really tasty
