Italian Heritage Casserole

I can't believe I haven't shared this recipe with y'all, since it's been a long-time family favorite. When I was a kid, my mom often made "think-outside-the-box" Christmas dinners, like steak and shrimp or lasagna. This casserole was one everyone enjoyed. The flavor and aroma can't be beat! We like to serve it over rice so we don't miss a tablespoon of the fantastic broth! My slow cooker is filled with Italian Heritage Casserole right now and my house smells wonderful.

Italian Heritage Casserole

1 pound boneless skinless chicken breasts
1 pound boneless skinless chicken thighs
1 pound Polska Kielbasa sausage cut into 3-inch lengths
6 red potatoes, quartered
1 green pepper, sliced
1 red pepper, sliced
1 medium onion, sliced
2 garlic cloves, chopped
1 teaspoon paprika
2 teaspoons Italian seasoning
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper
2 tablespoons olive oil
2 cups chicken broth

Place about 1/2 of the peppers, onion and garlic in a slow cooker.
Top with chicken. Sprinkle with about 1/2 of the seasonings. Add the
rest of the veggies, including potatoes, and sprinkle with the
remaining seasoning. Top with the kielbasa. Drizzle all with the
olive oil and pour in the broth. Cook on low for approximately 8
hours. Yield: serves 6
