My sauce wasn’t thick like the picture…It was actually a little soupy. Did I do something wrong?
Raquel most likely you didn’t do anything wrong. It can be that your chicken created more broth or the tomatoes were more watery. Next time if you want to thicken up the sauce, add a little corn starch to warm water and dissolve completely, and slowly add into sauce. It will not taste, and can thicken up the sauce. NOTE: Slowly you don’t want to add too much! Hope this helps! 😉
Does it have to be green peppers? My mom doesn’t like them. I would be making it myself & my mom.
Make this recipe your own Heather. You can eliminate the green pepper, and if you would like to add a different vegetable, you certainly can. Enjoy and Happy Crocking!
Jenn, I love that you shared this recipe. When I was a kid, my Momma would make this for me, and it was one of the first things I remember learning to cook. I have so many fond memories of this, and its the reason I own a crockpot! I make it for my little one and he loves it! We make ours slightly differently, I use bone in chicken, and remove the bones once the meat becomes tender. So delicious!
My husband and I have both had the gastric sleeve surgery and must eat protein, protein, protein. I love your site and recipes. However, our nutritionist says your protein values are way off and advises us not to use them.
