I have everything for this except chicken thighs.  I may put this in the crock before I head to work this morning.  (Since I was sick on Thursday and Friday when I usually plan my menu for the week we don't have a meal plan for this week).

I sure will.  I forgot to add in my previous comment that I don't have thighs but I do have chicken breast so that's what I'm using.

We just finished dinner with this recipe.  It's a keeper.  I used chicken breast instead of thighs and I left out the bacon.  My son has already put in a request to have this as his birthday meal next year.
