  • Slow Cooker French Wine and Mustard Chicken. It's not even October yet, but I'm full on ready for the slow cooker recipes. This one is surprisingly SO GOOD. I say surprisingly because the mustard part tends to throw me off. BUT. This sauce. It's EVERYTHING. Made with white wine, Dijon mustard, fresh herbs, and parmesan cheese, it is creamy, a little cheesy, super flavorful, and best served over mashed potatoes...or maybe those that creamy mashed cauliflower from last week? You can’t go wrong. AND? Because I like to give you guys everything you could possibly need, I've also include Instant Pot and stove-top directions too.
