Slow Cooking Thursday - Country Crockpot Chicken

Crockpot Country Chicken

1 pound small white potatoes, halved (going to use regular)
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

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.
