Recipe for Slow Cooker Sausage, Chicken & Peppers

Recipe for Slow Cooker Sausage, Chicken & Peppers #slowcooker #crockpotrecipe

Makes 4 servings

1 red bell pepper, cut into strips
1/2 lb ground sausage, browned and drained
1 lb boneless, skinless chicken thighs, trimmed of fat and cut each thigh into 4 pieces
1 small onion, diced
4 garlic cloves, minced
1 Tbsp tomato paste
1 Tbsp canola oil
1 tsp dried basil
1 tsp paprika
1/2 tsp dried thyme
1 1/2 tsp salt

1.  Combine onion, garlic, tomato paste, canola oil, basil, paprika and thyme in small microwave safe bowl.  Microwave for 4 or 5 minutes.  Stir every minute, until onions are soft.  Transfer to slow cooker.
2.  Stir chicken, sausage, salt and red bell pepper into the slow cooker. 
3.  Cover and cook on LOW 4-6 hours. 
4.  Serve over rice, if desired.

As my husband says, sausage makes everything taste better.  And it somewhat true, actually.  This was a flavorful dish.  Loved the red peppers to give it flavor and color.  A good, solid recipe that's fairly pantry friendly.  4 stars.
