Tuscan Chicken and Broccoli
When the weather gets cold, I love to make something hearty in my slow cooker. I saw a wonderful recipe for Tuscan chicken and Artichokes at www.recipe.com. Since I could not find any frozen artichokes at my local store I substituted frozen broccoli.
You will need
one package of frozen broccoli
1 medium onion chopped
3 cloves of garlic chopped.
1 package of chicken thighs. ( mine were boneless and I cut them in half )
1 tsp of Mediterranean seasoning
salt and pepper to taste
2 fresh green zucchini
1 package of yellow zucchini.............I like zucchini
1 cup of halved cherry tomatoes ( if more than a cup use them all up )
2 cups of broth ( I used beef broth because I was out of chicken broth )
Layer the frozen broccoli, onion, garlic, frozen yellow zucchini in slow cooker. Top with cut up chicken and broth. Cover and cook on high for 3 hours.
Add tomatoes sliced green zucchini and cover and cook for another half hour or until the veggies are cooked.
Serve in a large soup bowl with french bread on the side.
Have a great day!!!
