Remove chicken from the fridge and pat dry. Sprinkle all the salt and 1/2 teaspoon pepper on all sides of the chicken cubes. Spread flour out on a small plate and dredge the cubes in the flour, coating all sides. Shake off excess flour. Place oil in bottom of a large pan over medium heat, add cubes, and cook chicken on all sides until lightly browned, about 2-3 minutes.
Add chicken and all other ingredients to slow cooker, along with juices from the pan. Cover and cook on low for 6 to 8 hours or high 3 to 4 hours. Remove bay leaf before serving. Enjoy!
