  • 3 cups yellow squash sliced or cubed
  • 3 cups zucchini sliced or cubed
  • 3 cups eggplant cubed
  • 1 cup green bell pepper small diced
  • 1/2 medium yellow onion small diced
  • 8 ounces white mushrooms sliced
  • 2 tablespoons garlic minced
  • 4 - 5 chicken breasts whole
  • 48 ounces spaghetti sauce
  • 1 can diced tomatoes drained (14 ounce can)


  • Add all ingredients to the slow cooker (I use my 7 quart slow cooker) and give a quick stir, making sure the chicken breasts are fully submerged.
  • Cook on high for 4 hours or low for 8 hours.  Remove chicken and slice or shred, then reincorporate chicken and serve!
