Hot and humid monsoon season in Tucson means time to cook in the crock pot! I found this in BHG's "Crockery Cooking," and I am making it tomorrow! Great low-cal recipe at only 1 weight watcher point per serving.

I am trying this, minus the V8, with a cup of navy beans and chick peas, also using about 7-8 skinless chicken thighs with visible fat removed. I have no more room in my crock, but plan to add some chicken broth and barley, tomorrow. (I only added some water to the pot, along with frozen chicken thighs, it's sitting in my fridge, for tomorrow. I also added a red potato and carrot. Used 1 larger fennel bulb, and reserved the tips for tomorrow's garnish. I've seen your recipe online at a couple of websites, I'm kinda mixing a few recipes together. . . .
