Great recipe! Slow cooking is great but it can be made a lot healthier. Instead of a crockpot, I used MEC pure clay pot for this recipe. It cooked a lot faster and the flavor was all natural and enhanced. You should try that and I promise you'd never cook in a crockpot again.

I just made this recipe on Saturday. This is the best dish ever! My whole family loved it, even my picky son who isn't a big chicken eater! I made this just as written, and we loved it. This is definitely a keeper!!!

My husband loved this and said it had a lot of flavor. I even put my chicken in frozen so it could cook longer. I used homemade canned tomato sauce and homegrown peppers and garlic. I will definetly make this again so easy!
