It should be no secret that my favorite kitchen tool is the slow-cooker. Is there a Crock-Pot Anonymous, because I may need a 12 step program here.

This is a yummy twist on all the flavors of tomato-based vegetable soup and basic baked chicken. It’s an ideal dish for one of those cold, wintry days were just have no time to slave over the stove. (Again, I really do love the slow cooker.)

Things You’ll Need:

1 32 oz can of tomato sauce
4 large potatoes
5 large carrots
4 medium onions
Garlic salt
Parsley
Oregano
Basil
Boneless, skinless chicken breasts (4 to 5)

Step One:

Cut all of the vegetables into large chunks, about an inch and a half wide.

Step Two:

Layer the veggies in the bottom of the crock pot. Cover with tomato sauce. Turn the crock pot on and allow the veggies to cook on low for about two hours.

Step Three:

Make a mixture of parsley, oregano and basil in a wide bowl. Add 2 pinches of garlic salt to the bowl.

Step Four:

Put a piece of chicken in the bowl and coat with the herb blend. Repeat with the additional pieces of chicken.

Step Five:

Layer the chicken on top of the veggies (which have been cooking for about 2 hours). Ladel some tomato sauce on to the chicken. Allow the mixture to cook for about 3 hours on low.
