I tested this recipe for my Shrinking On a Budget Meal plan, but only cooked the chicken 6 hours and it was tender and delicious. I doubled the amount of chicken and used the Planned Leftovers in a Latin Chicken Pizza. Overall a very simple delish recipe!

I made the recipe exactly as called for cooking on low for 8 hours. The chicken was very dry. Less cooking time and doubling liquid may help to correct dryness.
