I really want to make this recipe, but we only use boneless, skinless chicken breasts. Do you know how many I should add to take the place of the chicken? I have to agree with Kefra that we may have a crock pot addiction too. I am coming up with all kinds of recipes to add to my collection. I think I have enough to try for the next few months or longer.

Hi SissieSass, while it depends on the size of the chicken you'd be substituting, I think you could go with about 3 large chicken breasts. I hope that helps! - Natalie, Editor of AllFreeSlowCookerRecipes

This looks so easy and Yummy! I try to keep chopped bags of vegies in the freezer all the time for soups and stews. Carrots, parsnips, rutabagas, celery, potatoes, then all I have to do is grab what's needed and dump it in the pot! Turn it on and dinner will be ready when we come home. :) I think I have a crock pot addiction!! LOL, just kidding! Just like to cook and have fun at it.
