Ingredients

  • 6 boneless skinless chicken breast halves (4 ounces each)
  • 2 tablespoons canola oil, divided
  • 8 ounces fresh mushrooms, sliced
  • 1 medium onion, diced
  • 3 cups diced zucchini
  • 1 cup chopped green pepper

  • 3 medium tomatoes, chopped
  • 1 can (6 ounces) tomato paste
  • 3/4 cup water
  • 2 teaspoons each dried thyme, oregano, marjoram, and basil

Directions

  1. Cut chicken into 1-in. cubes; brown in 1 tablespoon oil in a large skillet. Transfer to a 3-qt. slow cooker. In the same skillet, saute the mushrooms, onion, zucchini and green pepper in remaining oil until crisp-tender; add garlic; cook 1 minute longer.
  2. Place in slow cooker. Add the tomatoes, tomato paste, water and seasonings. Cover and cook on low for 4-5 hours or until the meat is no longer pink and vegetables are tender. If desired, top with chopped fresh thyme.
