Thrifty whole chicken is cut up and simmered in a spicy tomato sauce. I serve it with crusty bread so we can mop up and enjoy every last drop of sauce.—Gilda Lester, Millsboro, Delaware

Watery sauce with no depth of flavor.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Aug. 11, 2014

This wasn't my most favorite dish. It was okay. Also, I'm not a big fan of crockpot recipes that have bones in it. If I were to make this in the future, I would use boneless, skinless chicken thighs. I served this with buttered parsley egg noodles and Taste of Home's Green Peas with Onions.
