Instructions Checklist

    Advertisement
  • Mix tomatoes, carrots, red potatoes, onion, green bell pepper, red bell pepper, yellow bell pepper, and peas into chicken mixture.

  • Cook on high for 3 to 4 hours (or on Low for 7 to 8 hours).

Cook's Notes:

I usually cut the vegetables while the chicken is marinating.

You may add the tomatoes and peppers at the end of the cooking if you prefer them crispier.

Feel free to add soy sauce and pepper to taste.

I keep getting requests for this after my first time making it. I have made my own adjustments to this to suit our needs. First, I have to double it to feed our large family. I end up using 2-3 cans of diced tomatoes in place of the fresh. I leave out the peas, and use fresh mushrooms finely chopped. I end up only using 4 peppers instead of the six I'd be using with the doubled recipe, and we use mushroom soy sauce instead of regular. I've tried the store bought lemon juice in it before, but the fresh squeezed is the best. I also take chicken thighs or chicken quarters, bone in and skin on, and toss them in the bottom of the slow cooker before putting the stuff on top of them. Later, after it's cooked for a while, I pry the bones and skin out and shred the chicken. I also add a lot more garlic than it calls for because of our love of garlic. It's very good, and I will continue to make this as long as my family requests it. Read More

Given the lack of spices I was concerned this dish would not be spicy enough. No worries! As I am watching my sodium intake I used low salt soy sauce and only used 1/3 cup of olive oil. Nice stew. 3.5 Read More

I made it pretty much as the recipe called for. I used Bragg's Aminos instead of soy sauce....tastes the same and NO sodium. I used canned peas since that's all I had and I left out the carrots because I didn't have any. the family loved it ?? Served it with cornbread. Read More

This was a great meal. VERY Filling. I followed previous reviews and used low sodium soy sauce. I also made Uncle Ben's Wild Rice and some corn bread as sides. It smells great and tastes good too! Read More

Not great but palatable.. the ingredients are great but the slow cooking process dulls the flavors beyond their peak.. had to add a lot of salt afterwards. Read More

The family really liked. I made it according to the recipe substituting in low sodium soy for the regular soy. We still found it to be a bit saltier than we usually cook but I was delicious just the same. Read More

The only variation from this recipe that I took was I used 3/4 cup soy sauce and didn’t add the vegetables until about two hours before it was done just because I didn’t want them reduced to mush. It was delicious over rice with cornbread! Read More

Made as directed except increased soy sauce and olive oil by 1/4 cup. Substituted red potatoes for brown and can of Rotel mild tomotoes w green chiles for tomatoes. Added a can of chicken broth. So flavorful and hearty. Delicious to eat alone or over white rice, just the way my Lola used to make. Read More
