Prep:

45 Min

Cook:

6 Hr

Ingredients

4-6
chicken breasts (or 8-10 tenderloins)
2 c
apple juice
8-10 medium
new red potatoes
1 pkg
(small) mixed vegetables
2-4 small
onions
1
each green and yellow (female) peppers
2 Tbsp
italian seasoning
2 c
italian salad dressing
1 c
olive oil, light
4-6
servings rice or pasta (enough to cover your serving dish with a thick layer)
1
parmesan or other grated cheese
1
flour (enough to make a small amount of gravy to your chosen consistency)

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Mix the meats, juice, dressing, oil, seasonings and vegetables into a crock pot. Add sufficient COLD water to bring to 1 inch from the rim the lid sits on and let sit on high for 4-6 hours until the veggies are soft and the chicken is falling apart to the touch.
2
When the meat and vegetables are almost cooked, Cook your choice of Rice (White, Brown or Yellow) or Pasta (Egg, wheat or any Vegetable noodles work great), How soon before depends on the type of base you make. Then spread over serving plate to form a base.
3
Use some of the broth with flour to make a gravy, (how much and to what consistency is your choice, just make sure it has a little body at least so that it sits on top of the dish instead of soaking it through or it will become mushy).
4
Using a ladle, scoop out meats and veggies onto the rice or pasta base.
5
Pour a light coating of gravy over the top of the meats and vegetables.
6
Sprinkle Parmesan or other grated cheese lightly over the top and serve.
