Kat's Slow Chicken

This recipe comes to you from my Rival Crock Pot Slow Cooker Recipes. I choose it because I had all the ingredients on hand, it has little to no fat, lots of vegetables, was cheap, and so easy because it is a crock pot recipe. We liked it, but it needed more salt. James put seasoning salt on it and liked it so much more. Give it a try and adapt it to your own family's tastes.

4 to 6 boneless skinless breasts or 1 cut up whole chicken (3 lbs)
1 jar (26 oz) pasta sauce
1 medium onion, sliced
1 medium green bell pepper, cut into strips
4 carrots, sliced
1 rib celery, sliced
4 cloves garlic, minced
1/2 tsp. salt
2 tbsp to 1/4 c. water, divided
1 to 2 tbsp. cornstarch
Prepared mashed potatoes or hot cooked noodles (optional)
Combine all ingredients, except water, cornstarch and mashed potatoes in slow cooker. Cover; cook on low 6 to 8 hours. Before serving, combine 2 tbsp. water and 1 tbsp cornstarch in small bowl. Stir until mixture is smooth. Add to slow cooker. Cook on high an additional 15 minutes or until mixture thickens. If mixture needs additional thickening, add remaining water and cornstarch. Serve chicken and vegetables over mashed potatoes if desired.
