This is one of those good ol' down home meals. Add a pan of cornbread and you've got it made! You can obviously make this spicier by adding more chili powder, cayenne, jalapenos or just pass the Tabasco. Please note that the time shown is an estimate only as there will be a variance of heat from one crockpot to the next.
When DH first started teaching school in Arizona, money was extremely tight. I went to the library to check out various cookbooks to give me ideas. This recipe came from The Crockery Cook and I changed a couple things to suit our family's tastes.
I adopted this recipe from the Recipezaar account, and I'm so glad that I did. This has become a regular addition to my OAMC and I have created a public cookbook filled with recipe ideas using this recipe. This is a three-ingredient wonder that's easy (5 minutes of your time), delicious and versatile.
I attended a cooking class and the chef prepared this at home since it was a crock pot recipe but showed us how to prepare the meal during our class. It is a meal I prepare often. When our son and his wife come for dinner she always requests chicken stew. I serve it with polenta. The gravy is awesome!!
These have a great flavor! I have adapted this recipe to make in the crock pot, one of my favorite kitchen appliances :) They're easy and yummy served over rice and topped with sliced green onions. You may want to double the sauce ingredients if you like a lot of sauce. Also, you could easily cook over the stove if you want to throw it together quickly. I like to serve it with stir fry vegetables.
Tender, fall-off-the-bone chicken! Skip the overnight refrigeration if you are in a hurry. For variety, eliminate the onion and substitute a quartered lemon or two, stuffed into the chicken cavity. Chef Shapeweaver had a good suggestion: Use Fajita Seasoning Mix #28011 as another variation. Thanks! The standard size slow cookers are a bit too small and a whole chicken won't fit. You'll need a 6-quart slow cooker for this recipe.
