Crockpot Chicken and Veggie Delight is perfect for the summer. It so easy to make and doesn't heat up your kitchen because you are using your slow cooker. Plus if you garden you will have fresh veggies to choose from. If not you can always shop at your local farmers market. You can substitute with any vegetable and if you want to make this vegetarian I would suggest tofu or potatoes instead of chicken. We like to serve over rice or quinoa. You can also serve it over a bed of pasta.
Simply place the chicken in crockpot. You might want to spray your slow cooker with cooking spray or use a crockpot liner. Add your assorted veggies of choice. Add tomato sauce. Finally add Basil and Oregano (I like fresh). Add water if necessary to cover (however I prefer tomato juice instead). Cook on high heat for 1 hour and turn down to low for 3 hours. I like to serve this over a bed of rice. It is a complete meal with all the veggies and protein. It is filling but light which is perfect for summer.
If you you can prepare as a freezer meal. Simply combine all ingredients and freeze. Select vegetables that freeze well such as carrots, Brussels sprouts, butternut squash, green beans, peppers and onions. When you are ready to cook thaw in the refrigerator overnight and add to slow cooker. Cook on low for 8 hours.
This is the perfect garden recipe that is sure to make a delicious and light dinner that the whole family will love. I hope you enjoy this healthy recipe for Chicken and Veggie Delight as much as we do. It is soon to be a summer favorite!
