A slow cooker offers an array of endless possibilities, and a slow cooker really has your back when it comes to preparing a juicy chicken to perfection. We adore this light and lean chicken dish here at SkinnyMs., appreciating its low-calorie yet protein-rich goodness. Slow Cooker Honey Mustard Chicken combines simple ingredients: chicken, mustard, honey, and some fresh rosemary.
