Crockpot Chicken Sausage Harvest

Doesn't this just look like fall? I made this 2day in the crockpot, & it came out great. Love one-pot meals! Flavorful without being heavy. I left the peels on the potatoes & apples. Nice one for working parents or great for football game days! Smells soooooooooo good! Adjust cooking time according to your crockpot & how large you have the veggies chopped. You will have some cinnamon flavor in this, so if you don't like that, omit the cinn stick & add a dash of nutmeg to the sauce instead. Also, I think this would be even better with smoked pork sausage links!

Ingredients

4
chicken sausage links (i used spinach & feta flavor)
3-4
large potatoes (any kind), cut in large chunks
1
onion, cut in chunks
1 lb
fresh green beans
1
red pepper, cut in large chunks
20
baby carrots (or 3 whole carrots cut in chunks)
2-3
apples, cut in large chunks (i used granny smith)
1
cinnamon stick (optional)
1 c
beer (any kind, i used lite)
2 Tbsp
dijon mustard
1-2 tsp
minced garlic (or to taste)
2 tsp
montreal chicken seasoning
1 Tbsp
chicken stock (i like knorr's homestyle stock)
1 tsp
black pepper

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Begin to layer the ingredients in your crock pot. I did potatoes first, half the onions, apples, red pepper, carrots, rest of onions, green beans and sausage on top. Put cinnamon stick on top for the essence (optional).
2
Whisk the beer with mustard, montreal chicken seasoning, garlic, chicken stock, and black pepper. Pour over top. I also threw some caraway seeds over top, just because I had them.
3
I cooked for about 4-5 hours on high. Temp time will need to be adjusted according to your crockpot. I didn't want the broth to be thick; if you do, you could add some cornstarch or flour, I'm sure.
