Cooking with the crockpot is a perfect reason to share and eat in good company. Aust and I truly love and appreciate the simplicity of this kitchen tool. We trust that we can walk away and return to decadent aromas and delicious creations.
One of my go-to crockpot creations is a simple chicken stew. It is so quick to prep, so inexpensive, and works with whatever vegetables I have around my little kitchen! Win, win, win!
Crockpot Chicken Stew to Share
Chicken Broth, Sweet Potato, Bell Pepper, Yellow Onion, Tomatoes, Broccoli, Peas, Garlic, Chicken Breasts (these can be frozen), Chili Powder, Cumin, Salt and Pepper.
1. Pour a can of chicken broth into the crock and turn on high.
2. Cube and chop vegetables. Dice Garlic.
3. Layer in the crockpot: a cubed sweet potato, a few carrots, half an onion, four or so chicken breasts, a bell pepper, two tomatoes and one or two cloves of garlic.
5. Let the crockpot work for three to three and a half hours. Tonight I decided to get a little crazy and with about an hour left of cook time I added some chopped broccoli and left over frozen peas to the top. Let me tell you, that was a great decision.
Aust always comments on the simplicity of these ingredients, but the wonderful flavor that is created when all combined. I think that is a wonderful statement and that it compares nicely into the way we wish to live.
