The idea of a crock pot is to make your life easier. Not much is easier than this family-pleasing stew. Using things you probably have on hand anyways, you spend about 10 to 15 minutes preparation time and eat in 8 hours.
This is a simplified version of several slow cooker recipes that is not only delicious but extremely simple to make. Like most of the soup/chili/stew recipes, I’m “cooking for two with leftovers”.
Notes: I left the mushrooms out of my version of this recipe. We have food allergies in the family, so we never do mushrooms. I have listed them as optional. There was also a suggestion to add a drained can of diced tomatoes if you want a tomato based stew. Also included as an option.
Clean, trim and then cube chicken. Place all ingredients in crock pot except peas. Cook on low for 8 hours or high for 4 hours. Add peas 20-30 minutes before the end of cooking.
