Due to some upheaving in my life the last two days I havent had much time to cook. I decided this morning since i had to be up at 5 to throw something into the crockpot so we werent having take out for dinner. I had some chicken defrosted so thats where I started, threw in a few things and this is what we ended up with. I hadnt guaged the time well since I was expecting this to be dinner. Instead it was done early and the house smelled so incredibly tantalizing that my family decided they would have dinner for lunch lol. They devoured the entire crockpot of food and 10 of the brownies (for lack of a better word) that i had just finished frosting. Now everyone is laying around the house like stuffed pigs while i play on JAP.
This was really easy and honestly so savory and delicious. Everyone loved it and let me know that they will be expecting it again soon : )
Turn crockpot on high and put chicken legs in pot.
Add bell pepper strips to crockpt
Add onion slices to crockpot
In a large bowl mix together 2 jars of sauce, pepper, garlic powder, minced onion, parmesan cheese and milk.
Pour over the chicken in the crockpot, using a spatula to work sauce down around sides and in between chicken legs.
Sprinkle with additional pepper and cover. Cook on high 1 hour and then turn down to low for additional 4 or 5 hours or until chicken is down and very tender.
Using a slatted spoon, remove chicken and keep warm until ready to use. (i put mine in a tightly covered pyrex and let sit in oven, at no temp)
Drain sliced potatoes and add both cans to sauce in crockpot.
Steam broccoli in bag as instructed on back, using the least amount of time suggested. Empty broccoli from both bags into saucce in crockpot.
Add additional garlic powder, salt, pepper and parmesan now to taste. Stir and cover crockpot. Allow to cook for additional 20 to 30 minutes so they take in the savory garlic flavor.
Add serveral pieces of chicken to plate. Add broccoli and potatoes. Top it all with some peppers and onions and then spoon the sauce over the top. Be sure to Serve with some bread since everyone is going to want to sop up that sauce : ) Enjoy!
Save all leftovers for tomorrows lunch. We're making Savory Chicken and Rice Soup : )
