Recipe by KelBel

From food tv show "Quick Fix Meals with Robin Miller". A slow cooker meal that has a lot of flavor and color. A complete meal in one pot.

I made this pretty much as written, except that I braised the leeks and chicken in a bit of oil before putting them in the pot, for softer flavor and because I hate that pasty white look of poached chicken. I used breast, not thighs, because that's what I had, and added them to the pot with 2 hours left to go. Next time I'll use thighs; they are definitely better for slow cooking. I'll also use butternut squash for ease of peeling: no discernable flavor difference to me. The sauce was great, I served with brown rice and it was a big hit.
