Crock Pot Creole Chicken

READY IN: 6hrs 10mins
Recipe by Michelle S.

My husband and Father are crazy about this dish. I originally found this on where it was submitted by Nancy. Over time we have modified things a bit to our tastes. If you like hot, please go to town with the seasonings.

Spicy and delicious! I used about 5 skinless/boneless chicken breasts instead of 8 thighs which probably made no difference. Here in the UK I can only get a jar of jalapenos (no such thing as a tin of green chilies on this side of the pond to my knowledge) and I used about 1/2 of the jar. For all the tomato products I had to substitute what is available here as well so I used two cans of chopped tomatoes and a small jar of passata. I left the lid off the crock pot and turned it up to high for about an hour at the end and it thickened up beautifully. I have Tabasco sauce and Tony Chachere's seasoning from back home (I am originally a Louisiana girl) and these spiced it up to perfection. Thanks, Michelle!
