Smoky Tomatillo Chicken

Tonight’s dinner was great! I threw it together last night (I just put the chicken on the bottom and mixed the other stuff on top) so that it would be ready to take out of the fridge and let cook all day when I woke up this morning. It was my first time cooking with tomatillos and they were AWESOME! The only change I made was to use chipotle sauce, because the store didn’t have the actual peppers in whole form in a can. This was incredibly moist, and one of the best chicken dishes to come out of my slow cooker.
