I modified this recipe for the slow cooker and it turned out great. I put two 10oz cans of diced tomatoes with green chilies (I omitted the red pepper flakes) onion garlic extra chicken broth and a can of black beans with all the spices and meat into the slow cooker on low for six hours. I added in the zucchini and summer squash removed the chicken breasts and shred them on a plate with two forks stirred them back in and cooked it for another two hours. Came out delightfully moist and flavorful. No need to thicken it up at all. Wonderful and lo-carb friendly. I will be making this again. Thanks! Read More

This stew came out fantastic! I did make some minor changes. I used only chicken for meat used red pepper flakes paprika Italian seasoning blend fresh rosemary salt and pepper to season and I only had grape tomatoes on hand so I cut those in half. The cooking time allows all the flavors to blend nicely. Read More

This was AWESOME! The only change I made was adding Italian meatballs to it. I didn't have enough chicken and I had some frozen meatballs so I put the chicken I had plus meatballs in it and it was really good. My husband loved it and even my 4 little ones loved it. This is definitely a family favorite that we're going to be eating again and again. Read More

This was excellent! I cooked the meat in my pressure cooker first and then added the vegetables and simmered them. This is a keeper! Read More
