Nothing like the Mediterranean tastes of tomato, onion, bell peppers and of course chicken! All these tastes bundled up with chili sauce in one slow cooker. Simple, Spanish, scrumptious! Serve with asparagus and corn over plain white rice, if desired.

Recipe Ingredients

  • 2 pounds boneless chicken thighs
  • 1 quart boiling water
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 5 onions, cut into 2 inch pieces
  • 5 large green bell peppers, cut into 2 inch pieces
  • 1 (8 ounce) jar chili sauce
  • 1 (15 ounce) can tomato sauce
  • 1 cup ketchup

Cooking Directions

  1. 1 Place chicken in a large slow cooker. Pour in enough boiling water to completely cover the chicken, and add 1/2 teaspoon salt. Cover, and set slow cooker to HIGH. Cook until the chicken meat turns white.
  2. 2 Add the peppers and onions. Simmer until peppers and onions get a little tender, about 10 minutes. Stir in tomato sauce, chili sauce, and ketchup. Cover, set slow cooker to LOW, and cook for about 6 hours.

  1. I decided to change things up a bit while making this recipe. I cooked the chicken thighs in a can of diced tomatoes then added the peppers and onions left out the ketchup and chili sauce (keeping things simple and didn't have the chili sauce on hand). Served with roasted potatoes and broccoli.
  2. the recipe turned out well substituted chicken breasts instead of the thighs used fresh & dehydrated red/yellow peppers and couldn't find chili sauce so I used enchilada sauce.. instead of cooking the chicken first then adding everything I just put everything in all at once and cooked it for the same amount of time. the - Read more ...
  3. A little too sweet for my husband and me -- and I too found the recipe somewhat confusing. I boiled the water poured it onto the chicken in the crock pot -- then when the check turned white I took most of the water out -- and added the sauces. I cooked it for six - Read more ...
  4. I did not care for this recipe. It had no flavor to it other than a ketchup taste. Will definitely not be making again.
  5. I made this for a pot-luck party everyone love it!
  6. This dish has potential. Unfortunately, the directions do not correspond with my slow cooker, and it cooked way too fast. Fortunately, I rescued it before it was overdone and still had it for dinner. The spices were missing some notes. Needed salt, for one. I'll have to experiment to get it to my own taste. - Read more ...
  7. Probably the best slowcooker chicken I've had to date. Awesome to come home from work and have this mean ready for you. I served it on rice.
  8. Buenisimo!! A good way to cook chicken..Thank-You
  9. I was so confused about how I was supposed to make this because, to me, when you say slow cooker I think crock pot. Obviously, in order to begin with it boiling I just went ahead and did it on top of the stove. I didn't have chili sauce so I used a package of - Read more ...
