  1. In 10-inch skillet heat oil over medium-high heat. Add chicken and garlic. Cook, turning chicken occasionally, until browned. Drain grease.

  2. In 3 1/2 to 4 quart slow cooker add Simply Potatoes and carrots. Top with browned chicken and garlic. In small bowl stir cumin, ginger, ground red pepper and crushed red pepper until well blended. Sprinkle over chicken and Simply Potatoes. Add chicken broth. Cover; cook on LOW heat for 6 to 7 hours.

  3. Stir in tomatoes and raisins. Increase heat to HIGH. Cover; cook for 15 minutes. Stir in lemon juice just before serving.

  • We do not recommend substituting chicken breast in this recipe. Due to the longer cooking time chicken breasts dry out too quickly.

That actually sounds really good, and simple too. I bet chicken thighs would work well too.
