  1. I love my crock pot and I am always looking for new recipes to try. I am going to try this recipe and the pumpkin rolls. My kids will love them!

  2. This looks delicious. I love my crock pot in the fall and winter months, but I get stuck in a rut making the same handful of recipes over and over. This looks like it would be a nice one to add.

  3. My family and I often have to go to the food bank and we get an abundance of canned veggies. This recipe will definitely come in handy. We also get turkey and chicken from the food bank as well. Thank you so much for posting this recipe.

  4. I am always looking for good slow-cooker recipes in the winter. especially chicken. Thanks for sharing this and I want to give it a try.

  5. Living in Florida when it’s too hot to turn the oven or stove on, even with the A/C on!, I use my slow cooker several times a week. I’m always looking for new recipes and this one sounds great! What a time saver too, using canned vegetables! Thank you for sharing!

  6. I like chicken cooked in the slow cooker. I only use boneless skinless breast meat. I never cook it with the skin on. Not only is it fatty, I’m not fond of the texture. The recipe itself is good and easy. I would just change it to use breast meat only.
