Just tried this recipe and while it was good, it was a little overwhelmingly tomato-y the first night. There was plenty left for a redoux, so I added 3/4 cup concentrated chicken broth to cut the predominant tomato flavor, served it over a bit of rice topped by a healthy dollop of parmesan cheese and it was much more enthusiastically received by the family.

Excellent! The herb amounts looked skimpy to me, so I used about a tablespoon of Italian seasoning & was glad that I did. Also, next time I'll try omitting the chicken broth, since there was a lot of extra liquid. A great keeper--thanks!

As long as I saute the chicken breasts and add them just before serving, this is a great stew, justcallmetoni.

I love this! I also used 12oz chicken sausage (spicy) and a smaller chicken breast. I added a little crushed red pepper as well. I believe my new crock pot is off a little because i checked on this after 4.5 hours on low, and the zucchini and green peppers were already soft, so i added the beans then for 10 minutes. After tasting, I had to eat an entire bowl (rather than waiting for DH to get home from work). So easy, healthy and delicious! Thanks!

Oh my gosh this was delicious! I used grated carrots, 12 oz chicken sausages (not spicy though), and 5 oz chicken breast. I added a bit more broth and seasonings because I really loaded in the veggies. It was awesome, thank you so much!

Wonderful! The vegetables turned out slightly crunchy and perfect (not mushy as I feared). I used turkey sausage because chicken sausage was not available in my area. I made this for guests and they all wanted the recipe.

This is a great for a crockpot, I made as stated only used smoked beef sausage in place of chicken and browned the sausage first, I added in some Creole seasoning to add some heat and also increased the garlic to 2 tablespoons, I haven't used my crockpot in a while and I think it is about time for a new one as this took 5 hours on HIGH to cook, anyway thanks for sharing Toni!...Kitten:)
