I have never made chicken Goulash before, so I am looking forward to trying this recipe. It looks really easy and I am always looking for new slow cooker recipes to try. I do have a question. What are 'crushed tomatoes'? I have looked for them in my local supermarket but the closest I can find are regular chopped tomatoes in juice in a can. Is that the same thing? Would it affect the taste if I used chopped tomatoes instead of crushed?

Definitely looking forward to enjoying this one. Sounds delicious!

I have never made goulash with chicken. It has always had beef in the recipe. Do you use the seasoned, diced tomatoes, or just the plain kind? Sometimes it matters, and sometimes it don't, so I always make sure. It sure sounds delicious. I know it will be something different to put on the table, and that is exactly what we are looking for now.

We love goulash at our house, so I make it quite often. I make it without tomatoes, but I do add three tablespoons of paprika. I also add caraway seeds and marjoram. We usually eat it with bread dumplings or broad noodles and occasionally with mashed potatoes.
