Crock Pot Sofrito Chicken

Pin It This recipe was inspired by, one of my favorite food blogs.  It used to hurt my feelings when Albert said he didn't want to eat my cooking, but now I just ignore it because he usually ends up loving it.  Last night as I was filling my crock pot, he turned up his nose at the sight of all of the veggies I was cutting  up (and the lingering smell of garlic and onions).  However, this morning he sent a text about the delicious smell taking over our house.  The aroma of the chicken cooking is absolutely mouthwatering.  Definitely whets your appetite for an awesome meal. 

Crock Pot Sofrito Chicken
1/2 bunch of green onions, chopped (about 4)
4 cloves garlic, minced
2 medium tomatoes, diced

1 tsp ground cumin
1 tsp salt
1 tsp garlic powder
1 packet Sazon ( seasoning packets in mexican aisle)

2. Pour water and beer over seasoned veggies.
3. Place chicken pieces on top of veggies.
