This may not be the best picture in the world but it is a very good recipe if you want to try it out. I am far from a perfectionist. In my life I am a normal person and everything does not come out looking like Pinterest recipes.

This was my first full weekend home since Memorial Day weekend. I wanted to cook some and clean house.  I love using my Ninja Mc703 Multi Cooker 3 in 1 Cooking System . If you have a crock pot you can make the same meals. You may just have to use a pan on the stove to brown and saute the onions. With the Ninja you can do everything in one pan.

Please check out some of my other recipes. Make sure you pin them so you can find them later.

You should be able to use whatever type of chicken you want. I had one Ninja with legs and one filled with thighs.
