Chicken Saltimbocca - Crockpot Recipe

New Year and new recipes to try!
I love trying new food ideas on the family; getting stuck in a rut eating the same food is never fun.
This recipe I found while checking out the Taste of Home website and it was one that I simply had to try.
Now, if I had paid a bit more attention to the recipe I would have noticed that it was to be cooked in the crock pot.
As you know, I love crock pot recipes and that was not an issue.
What was the issue?
I waited until 4 pm to get started on the recipe because somewhere in my mind I had it baking in an oven.
The recipe is absolutely delish! The kiddos kept raving how good it was, dh enjoyed it and Nateman went back for seconds that hardly ever happens!
I thought the recipe needed a bit of color so I added in the peas.
The chicken would be quite a bit tender when cooked in a crock pot, but the oven did a fine job with this recipe.
