Yummy, warm food.
There is nothing like being by a fireplace or warm home with a bowl of delicious chicken and rice. I love this recipe because it has your meat, veggies and sauce all in one pot and it ends up with a sweet and tangy flavor and is so easy but doesn’t have all the questionable ingredients that similar recipes have. You can also change up the ingredients and try other things you like, such as green beans, sweet or white potatoes, snap peas, butternut squash, etc. – really almost any vegetable will work and you can change up the flavor just by playing around with the vegetables.

Add the onion, sliced peppers, and sliced zucchini to the crock pot. Cook for one more hour.
Mix the arrowroot powder and water together to form a smooth mixture.
