Nice recipe. To keep the sodium down for my hubby I skipped the bottled spaghetti sauce and used a can of diced tomatoes with no salt added. Pureed them in my blender with all spices except skipped the salt. I upped the oreg, basil and pepper to 1/2 t.. Since a helpful person left the review about the cooking time problem, I cooked mine for an hour on high and then turned to low for the next 4 hours.

Lots of veggies, but I would increase the carrots and reduce the onion if I were to make it again. And the cooking time is way off. It was on low, as instructed, for 3 hours and on high for two more and the potatoes still weren't done. The carrots were a little crunchy, but that was okay.

This recipe sounds great. Love the use of all the vegetables. I will probably use family size package of chicken thighs. Thanks for the recipe.
