For some reason I don't do a lot of food in the slow cooker. No reason. But this is a wonderful tasty dish for the days when you have too many other things to do.
I like to salt and pepper my chicken and let it set overnight in the refrigerator. But if you forget, don't worry about it.
1 cut-up frying chicken, or your favorite parts, about 3 pounds
1 pound fresh mushrooms
1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
1 teaspoon salt
1 pound can of tomatoes, use your home canned
1/2 cup chopped onions
1 bay leaf
2 teaspoons basil leaves
2 medium zucchini, cut into 2-inch chunks
1 green pepper, cut into strips
Put chicken into slow cooker. Add rest of ingredients. Cook on low for 6-8 hours. When ready to serve, if desired, you may slightly thicken the sauce and serve with rice or noodles.
