Slow Cooker Tuscan Chicken with Fall Vegetables

It’s officially slow cooker season!!  Ok, we all may use it throughout the year but once Fall hits, I really start to break it out!  I love using vegetables that are in season and Fall has some hearty ones that hold up well in slow cookers! I used boneless chicken breasts but you can use any chicken parts to your liking.  I added in large cut mirepoix (carrots, celery and onions) that I picked up from Wegmans which cuts that prep time totally!  Threw in some fennel (love that licorice taste) and crushed tomatoes to make it thick and hearty!
 
I like to prep the whole meal the night before in the slow cooker pot and then all I have to do is pop it in after breakfast and it’s ready to go!  After work my house smells amazing-bonus!  You can also pair this with whole wheat bread to sop up the hearty goodness! This is a definite crowd pleaser!!
 
 
Just look at the Fall colors in the pot!  You know you are eating a rainbow of goodness!
Hot and delicious!
