Crock Pot Chicken with Sweet Potatoes and Carrots

Life as we know it is hectic so why not make it a little easier and USE a CROCK POT!!
I saw this recipe on a friend's blog and it spoke to me -
Chicken... Check
Sweet Potatoes...Check (my new favorite)
Carrots...Check (my kids' favorite vegetable)

So I figured if it sounded this good it probably tastes great too and I was right!! We had this for dinner tonight and it was so darn yummy!! I made a few modifications to the original recipe that my friend had posted but the end result was PERFECT!! The chicken and vegetables were so tender from the crock pot! The only thing I would try differently next time is to lessen the amount of chili powder I use to 1/2 teaspoon.  My kids said the vegetables were too hot (although they still ate them!)

Crock Pot Chicken with Sweet Potatoes and Carrots

3 large sweet potatoes, cut into thick pieces
5 large carrots, chopped into large pieces
1 large onion, chopped
4 chicken breasts (or tonight I used 8 chicken breast tenders)
2 cans reduced sodium chicken broth (can add another 1/2 can if you prefer a more stew-like dinner)
2 tablespoons tomato paste
2 garlic cloves, minced
2 tablespoons soy sauce
1 teaspoon chili powder (optional)

1. Place chicken and vegetables in crock pot.
2. Add in chicken broth, tomato paste, garlic ,soy sauce, and chili powder and stir.
3.  Cook on low for 6-8 hours or until chicken is fork tender.

Tonight I served this dish with a side of Quinoa and brown rice medley and a side of steamed broccoli.

Serves 4
