WELCOME

Welcome to this slow cooker/crockpot blog. I believe slow cookers are the best thing to happen to modern day cooks. I used mine often when I worked outside the home and continue to do so even in retirement. It is so nice to put food on and forget about it. Slow cookers also allow us to cook many things we would normally have to use the oven for; what a relief in hot Texas weather! Some of these recipes are mine, many are ones I have collected over the years.

ITALIAN CHICKEN STEW OVER PASTA

12 boneless skinless chicken thighs
2 cans Italian-style diced tomatoes
2 cups cubed zucchini
1 cup diced onion
1 cup baby carrots
2 tbsp tomato paste
2 garlic cloves, minced
1 tbsp sugar
1/2 tsp crushed red pepper flakes
1/2 tsp salt
8 cups cooked pasta

Cut chicken into 1-inch pieces. Combine all ingredients except pasta in the crockpot. Cook on low at least 6 hours or until chicken is cooked through. To serve, place pasta on serving plate or bowl and top with the stew.
