We are always on the lookout crock pot recipes with a unique flavor and we just fell in love with this Rustic Italian Crock Pot Chicken from our friends over at Red Gold.
We just loved this recipe. It is like a fantastic combination between a rich spaghetti sauce and veggie stew. Everyone loved it so much when I served it up the other day, my parents took home the leftovers to have the next day!
Now the recipe calls for diced tomatoes, so I took the opportunity to substitute in that uber-flavorful Basil, Garlic and Oregano variety that Red Gold offers. Perfection!
As for my favorite slow cooker to cook this up, in it has to be one of my stove-top safe slow cookers because of their non-stick crocks which make clean up a total snap!
