All you need are some simple ingredients from the pantry to put this together. I love that I can go fishing while it cooks. —Peter Halferty, Corpus Christi, Texas

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jun. 22, 2014

This was certainly quick and easy recipe for lazy days of summer or any other times. Very good recipe, but I did have to up the spices a little more after tasting the dish throughout it's cooking time. Thanks for sharing.

Delicious! However I did not use a slow cooker. I just baked in oven on 375 until the cornbread was done.

This was very good. I used boneless, skinless chicken thighs for the ground chicken. I placed the chicken in the bottom of the crock, then added the spices and the remaining ingredients. I also added 1/4 teaspoon of cayenne for little more heat. We have now made this recipe twice. This is a keeper for us also. Thanks TOH!!!

We really loved this and it was so easy. I did it on a day I was home from work, but I could see browning the meat the night before, then putting it all together in the morning and starting the cornbread part when I get home.

Fast (prep time), easy and delicious! I made a couple of personal substitutions--Boca burger crumbles that I had on hand (I cut the cooker time by about half, I think), and a can of hominy for the corn. If you are what you eat, then I'm fast, cheap, and easy, and this fits that description wonderfully.
