Slow Cooker Tomatillo Chicken

It’s been a crazy few weeks for some friends of mine, not the least of which was moving to a new home – so I decided to bring them dinner on moving day.  A cozy meal seemed the right idea, featuring this slow cooker Tomatillo Chicken.  It’s simple to prepare – done in a slow cooker while I was at work.  The bite of the tomatillo salsa and the creamyness of sour cream is a great blend.  I served it with brown rice and roasted vegetables. For dessert, my Apple Crisp – how cozy is that!  Happy Housewarming!
