In a 5- or 6-quart slow cooker combine mushrooms, celery, carrot, onions, sweet pepper, and garlic. Cover vegetables with the chicken. Add broth, wine, tapioca, bay leaves, oregano, sugar, salt, and pepper.Advertisement
Cover and cook on low-heat setting for 6 to 7 hours or on high-heat setting for 3 to 3-1/2 hours.
Remove chicken and keep warm. Remove bay leaves and discard. If using low-heat setting, turn to high-heat setting. Stir in undrained tomatoes and tomato paste. Cover and cook 15 minutes longer on high-heat setting. To serve, spoon vegetable mixture over chicken and pasta.
Tip: For easy cleanup, line your slow cooker with a disposable slow cooker liner. Add ingredients as directed in recipe. Once your dish is finished cooking, spoon the food out of your slow cooker and simply dispose of the liner. Do not lift or transport the disposable liner with food inside.
