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.

You know I don't eat chicken but since so many of you do and are always requesting chicken recipes, here is one for you that is a little different.

4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cut into bite-size pieces
2 medium-size sweet potatoes, peeled and cubed
2 medium-size Yukon Gold potatoes, peeled and cubed
2 medium-size carrots, peeled and cut into 1/2-inch slices
1 can (28-oz) whole stewed tomatoes
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp freshly ground black pepper
1/8 tsp ground cinnamon
1/8 tsp ground nutmeg
1 tsp paprika
1 tsp celery seed
1/4 cup fresh basil, chopped
1 cup chicken broth

Combine all the ingredients in a crockpot or slow cooker.  Place lid on cooker and cook for 6 to 8 hours on low or 3 to 4 hours on high.
Note: This is a Rival recipe I adapted.
