Recipe for Slow Cooker Sausage, Chicken & Peppers

I once heard a girl talking about her favorite recipe that involved chicken and sausage.  I immediately thought "I need to make something like that in the crockpot!"  So that's what I did.  I love how the sausage flavors everything perfectly.  The red pepper adds in some extra dimension and flavor and color.  The chicken is super tender.  You can serve this over rice or potatoes or simply on it's own!  It's all yummy.
