  • 2 Cover and cook on low heat setting about 7 hours or until squash is tender and juice of chicken is no longer pink when centers of thickest pieces are cut. During last 10 minutes of cook time, cook couscous as directed on package.
  • 3 Remove chicken and vegetables from slow cooker with slotted spoon. Serve over couscous. Stir sauce in slow cooker; spoon over chicken mixture.

    Note: This recipe was tested in slow cookers with heating elements in the side and bottom of the cooker, not in cookers that stand only on a heated base. For slow cookers with just a heated base, follow the manufacturer’s directions for layering ingredients and choosing a temperature.

EXPERT TIPS

Expert Tips

(Total time will vary with appliance and setting.)

Sprinkle with cashews or peanuts for a little crunch.

If you like your bell peppers with a bit of crunch, add it to the mixture during the last 15 minutes of cooking. Uncover and cook on high setting about 15 minutes or until crisp-tender.

If your family prefers thighs, use 6 boneless, skinless chicken thighs instead of the breasts, or substitute 2 boneless breast halves and 4 boneless skinless chicken thighs.
