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.

Slower Cooker Chicken and White Bean Stew

2 pounds skinless, boneless chicken thighs
2 teaspoons ground cumin
1/8 teaspoon ground black pepper
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 jar of Classico Alfredo sauce
1 (15 ounce) can Cannellini beans, rinsed and drained
1 cup reduced-sodium chicken broth
1/2 cup chopped red onion (1 medium)
4 cloves garlic, minced
1/4 cup shredded sharp cheddar cheese or Monterey Jack cheese
Fresh parsley leaves (optional)

Cut chicken into 1-inch pieces. Sprinkle chicken with cumin and black pepper. In a large skillet cook chicken, half at a time, in hot oil over medium heat until browned. Place chicken in a 3-1/2- or 4-quart slow cooker. Stir in Alfredo sauce, beans, broth, onion, and garlic.

Cover and cook on low-heat setting for 4 to 5 hours or on high-heat setting for 2 to 2-1/2 hours. If desired, sprinkle each serving with cheese and/or parsley.

Recipe slightly adapted from BHG
