Easy Gourmet Chicken Marbella Crock Pot Recipe

As a mom of four, and a very busy home-based entrepreneur, I love the word “easy” and dread the word “gourmet.” It is a little difficult to find both of those terms used together in a good description of anything, but here you have it! This simple slow cooker recipe is gourmet, but only in taste and looks, not time or money. A unique combination of chicken, olives, and prunes – this filling dish is a beautiful addition to any family’s dinner table! Versatile enough for guest night, or just for a homey evening in – enjoy this classic in your own kitchen today.
