Slow Cooker Old World Chicken and Vegetables

Total Time

My family (even the little ones) really like this dish. It is simple to prepare and very tasty. Although the recipe says to cook 8 hours, I usually cook 4 to 5 hours on low. My slow cooker must usually run hot.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Combine oregano, 1/2 teaspoon salt, paprika, garlic powder and black pepper in a small bowl; mix well.
  2. Place bell peppers and onion in slow cooker.
  3. Add chicken; sprinkle with the oregano mixture.
  4. Cover; cook on LOW 8 hours or on HIGH 4 hours.
  5. Stir in ketchup and remaining 1/2 teaspoon of salt.
  6. If desired, cut chicken and let it sit in the sauce, for a half hour or so before serving, to absorb the flavor.
  7. Serve chicken and vegetables over hot cooked noodles or rice.

I think this was JUST okay -- but maybe my crockpot cooks on a higher heat because I ended up with a pot of mush despite only cooking on low for about 7 hours max. Maybe I hoped for too much? I don't think I will try it again, but if I do, I will check it after 5 hours on low.

This didn't receive rave reviews in my house but it was GOOD. :) It was easy to put together, and I added a few more veggies just to round out the meal a bit more (and make enough to feed 2 men and a toddler boy as well as 2 women.) And it was nice that no one knew there was ketchup in it ;) My son ate a fair amount of the chicken and I served it over rotini.
