4 boneless skinless chicken breast
1 lg. can crushed tomatoes
1tsp. thyme
mushrooms (I use a pkg. of already sliced)
1 green pepper, sliced into sticks
1 red pepper, sliced into sticks
1 yellow pepper, sliced into sticks
1 med. onion sliced
1 or 2 cloves of garlic, minced
a few tablespoons of Tuscan style olive oil Italian dressing

Cook chicken in a non stick pan with the dressing until browned on both sides. Meanwhile, slice veggies and add all to slow cooker with the garlic. Place browned chicken on veggies. Mix thyme with the tomatoes and pour over chicken.

Cover and cook for 8 hours on low or 5 hours on high.

I serve on brown rice with a salad on the side.

This IS what's for dinner tonight! :)

Thats pretty much the same recipe i use except I boil the chicken till its cooked then add it into the pot with the other stuff and let it cook all day and serve over rice.
I also make something very similar to this but instead of chicken i use steak. Its called swiss steak. Pretty much the exact same ingredients just use steak instead of chicken, and the easy part is you dont have to pre cook the steak,m just throw it all into the pot/crock pot, and let it all cook together all day. The steak melts in your mouth. Serve it over rice as well. You can use any steak you like, I use the quick fry ones or the cheap blade steaks. Cut it into pieces and throw it all in.

Now I have a craving for swiss steak. I guess its ff to the store to buy the ingredients to make this tomorrow ..lol
