Crockpot Greek Chicken


The inspiration recipe for this mealpod had carrots instead of parsnips.  Also, my recipe does not include the black olives I threw in at the end.  What I discovered while cooking this was that it was extremely ~WHITE~ which didn't look very appetizing, even though it tasted delicious.  So I threw in the black olives and sprinkled a little paprika on top.  Viola!  Color!  LOL.
