Mango Peach Chicken Leg Quarters

This is one of the simple and delicious recipes I've made!  The chicken was so tender and juicy, and the flavor was awesome!  All this took was 4 very simple and healthy ingredients. Yup, just 4! I'm all about simplicity lately!

All four of us ate this up! My son (13 months) and daughter (4) enjoyed every bite.  My husband continuously told me how good this was with each bite :)  You know you have a winner when the whole family eats with no complaints! (Although, Gavin, my son, doesn't really protest anything you put in front of him!)

So, how did this recipe come to be?  Well, I was at Costco....and kind of hungry. I know what you're thinking......not a good scenario.  This time, it was ok.  I bought a HUGE jar of Mango Peach Salsa.  Instead of scarfing the whole thing with chips, (which I had my fair share of btw!) I decided it would be DELICIOUS in my slow cooker.  I was right.  Thank goodness!

This was my first time ever cooking with Chicken Leg Quarters, and it won't be the last.  They stayed moist, flavorful and had lots of meat on them.  We used a whole family pack so we would have dinner for a few days.  You don't have to use Leg Quarters for this recipe.  You can use thighs, breasts, or whatever cut you would like.....or is on sale!
