    I got this from a different site, tried it and loved it. Thought I would share it here. This would probably be good if your using an older bird that might be a bit stringy.

    This is a simple one-pot chicken and vegetable meal that takes minutes to prepare, and can be left cooking away for hours while you're at work or running all-day errands.
    INGREDIENTS:
    1 pound small white potatoes, halved
    8 ounces baby carrots (half a 16-ounce bag)
    1 medium onion, sliced
    2 large ribs celery, sliced
    8 ounces sliced mushrooms
    1 1/4 pounds skinless, boneless chicken breasts, cut into pieces
    2 tsp dried mixed herbs
    1 14.5 ounce can crushed tomatoes
    1/2 cup fat-free, low-sodium chicken broth
    PREPARATION:
    Coat the inside of a 4-5 quart crockpot with nonstick cooking spray. Place vegetables in base of crockpot. Sprinkle with dried herbs. Add chicken pieces, then finish with canned tomatoes and broth. Cook on low for 6-8 hours, until vegetables are tender and chicken is cooked.
    If you want to thicken the juices, make a cornstarch slurry of 2 tablespoons of cornstarch to 1/4 cup of broth or water and stir in half an hour before the end.

    Serves 6.

    Mmmmm sounds good! Does it end up like a soup?

    What kind of mixed herbs did you use? It sounds very good.

    Quote:Mine didnt because I used some corn starch to thicken it. Its really up to you and how you like it. I prefer mine more like a stew than a soup
