Just made a really yummy one monday night.
1/2 cup tomato sauce (I added 2 tsps of italian seasoning)
1 cup of chicken stock
1/4 cup of red wine
3 spicy italian sausage links, squeezed out of casing and browned like ground beef, with diced onion and garlic.
skin on bone in chicken thighs.
Yellow and orange bell peppers.
Brown the skin side of your chicken thighs till they are deeply golden and crisp.
In the same pan, brown your sausage meat, and add your onion and garlic. Pour the wine in and allow to reduce slightly. Add stock and tomato sauce.
Layer the sausage mixture in the bottom of your crock pot. Nestle the chicken thighs on top, and the bell peppers on top of the chicken. Cook on low for 5-6 hours.
I also love to do pulled pork in the crock pot.
Beef stew with turnip instead of potato, or celeriac!
Chicken stew with squash instead of potato.
The more I see the less I know for sure.
