The crock pot was originally made in the early 1900s but didn't become popular until the 1960s when busy moms needed something to help them make meals easier.

This recipe uses chicken, you can use just vegetables if you are a vegetarian or a vegan and it will come out just as tasty. If you use chicken, make sure that you get your meat from an organic, free range source that raises happy chickens. These free range chickens will not contain all of the hormones and antibiotics that commercially raised chickens have and they will be raised in a natural environment instead of inside in crowded areas. It is also important to remember some general kitchen cleanliness when preparing meats like chicken, as the raw, uncooked meat can leave behind harmful bacteria if you are not careful. An easy remedy for this is to make sure you wash all of the utensils and surfaces you use while preparing raw meat. This includes cutting boards, plates, forks, knives and counter tops as well as your hands and any cloths you used to wipe up after. Since this meal is being cooked in its marinade, it is okay to use it, but any marinade that is left over and isn't cooked with chicken must be thrown out and not used with any other food.
This crock pot chicken would taste amazing as a salad, or served as fajitas in tortillas and the leftovers would make for a great lunch the next day if there were anything left over.
