Yes, I missed it. Tasty Tuesday got away from me this week...
So I am setting about making it right by posting the Tasty Tuesday recipe on Thursday. Because why shouldn't I confuse things once in a while?
First, I hope you had a lovely Thanksgiving Day and weekend. I had a beautiful Thanksgiving -- peaceful, blessed with loved ones, and free of any ridiculous bruhaha. It was a wonderful day, and that made it easy to get back into my work routine and get things rolling in business again afterward.
As we head into Christmas time, I will be focusing on recipes that: 1) Make the days a little easier by saving you time and trouble during this busy season, 2) Offer options for different types of meals or events around the holidays -- such as snacks to accompany favorite movies or games with friends and family, 3) Include a variety of nourishing foods for meals as well as decadent foods for desserts, treats, and sweets.
Today's Recipe is for Hunter Stew (with Chicken), an easy feast to make in the slow cooker or crock pot so you can plug it in early in the day and enjoy it for your supper in the evening.
3 boneless, skinless chicken breast halves, cut into pieces of about 2 inches by 1 inch.
1 medium green bell pepper, chopped into pieces about 1 inch square.
1 medium onion, sliced thin.
1 (15- ounce) can garbanzo beans, drained,
1 (14- ounce) jar (about 1 and 1/2 cups) tomato pasta sauce (such as Prego, Ragu, Classico).
1 (8- ounce) can mushroom stems and pieces, drained.
1) Combine all ingredients in 3 or 4-quart slow cooker.
2) Cover, and cook on low setting for 6 to 7 hours.
This meal is hearty and healthy and will work very well to feed your family with little fuss or hassle as you are likely busy with a lot of other things this holiday season.
