TOTAL TIME: Prep: 20 min. Cook: 5 hours YIELD:9 servings

Ingredients

  • 1/2 pound uncooked chorizo or Johnsonville® Hot Ground Sausage
  • 1 large potato, cubed
  • 1 large onion, chopped
  • 1 large green pepper, chopped
  • 3 jalapeno peppers, seeded and chopped
  • 1 can (28 ounces) crushed tomatoes
  • 1 jar (26 ounces) marinara sauce
  • 1 can (14-3/4 ounces) cream-style corn
  • 1 tablespoon Cajun seasoning
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 1/2 teaspoon sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/3 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 can (14-1/2 ounces) chicken broth
  • 2 pounds bone-in chicken breast halves, skin removed
  • 1 cup cut fresh green beans
  • 2 tablespoons minced fresh cilantro
  • Shredded Asiago cheese

Directions

  • 1. Crumble chorizo into a small skillet; cook over medium heat for 6-8 minutes or until fully cooked. Drain. Transfer to a 6-qt. slow cooker. Add the potato, onion, green pepper, jalapenos, tomatoes, marinara sauce, corn, Cajun seasoning, garlic, sugar, pepper and salt.
  • 2. In a small bowl, combine flour and broth until smooth; stir into slow cooker. Add the chicken. Cover and cook on low for 5-6 hours or until chicken and vegetables are tender, adding green beans and cilantro during the last 2 hours of cooking.
  • 3. Remove chicken from slow cooker. When cool enough to handle, remove meat from bones; discard bones. Cut meat into bite-size pieces and return to slow cooker; heat through. Sprinkle servings with cheese. Yield: 9 servings (3-1/2 quarts).
Editor's Note: Wear disposable gloves when cutting hot peppers; the oils can burn skin. Avoid touching your face.
