Anyway, this recipe came from a book called "The Everyday Low-Carb Slow Cooker Cookbook. I just started using a crockpot for cooking after finding one insanely cheap. I would add more salt and pepper to it as well as adding basil and more spices...a touch of marjoram, savory, sage and thyme would be nice. Fresh basil would pep it right up. It was pretty good as is for following the recipe to a t.

(i made a half recipe since my crockpot is very small)

Add to crockpot:
1 Tbsn olive oil
1 Tbsn minced garlic
14 oz can of crushed tomatos (i used crushed tomatos with basil)
7 oz can of mushrooms
1 bay leaf
1 Tbsn dried oregano
3/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
1 Tbsn red wine (see my chart for alcohol substitutions on the sidebar under food links)

Stir until blended then add:

2 pounds skinless, boneless chicken thighs
1 medium onion
2 green bell peppers

Cook on low for 8 hours (my crockpot only has one setting...i cooked it for 6 hours and it was perfect).
