Great Fall/Winter Crock Pot Recipe with a 'surprise' ingredient that really puts this over the top for "Yum Factor". My family loves it, and it is a really short ingredient list! I originally got the basic recipe from a magazine and changed a couple of things for more flavor. (Like using chicken broth instead of water, and adding chopped ham -- or chicken works well too -- whichever you have). Great on it's own, or served over rice!

Very Interesting recipe!! I was trying to use some sweet potatoes and chicken, so...tada! The peanut butter, cumin, pumpkin pie spice...had a little Indian-ish taste, which I loved and my husband liked "okay". It needed a little salt and pepper at the end, followed the recipe to a tee, but used 4 large frozen chicken breasts in leiu of ham. Cooked for 3 hours on high and another 5 on low. Very hearty and fallish!

Although I made this recipe to take to a neighbor couple, I did keep several small bowls for the 2 of us to enjoy, which we did, for sure! Loved the combo of the sweet potato & peanut butter, along with the diced, cooked chicken breast that I substituted for the ham! Great homey satisfaction, & a keeper of a recipe!
