1 medium butternut squash ( about 3 lbs), peeled and cubed
1 can (14.25) diced tomatoes, drained
1 medium onion, chopped
3/4 c reduced-sodium chicken broth
1 garlic clove, minced
1 tsp Italian seasoning
1/4 tsp coarsely ground pepper, divided
1/4 c all-purpose flour
1 tsp seasoned salt
6 chicken drumsticks, skin removed ( I used boneless skinless thighs)
1 c uncooked orzo pasta
1. in a 5 qt slow cooker, combine the squash, tomatoes, onion, celery, broth, garlic, Italian seasoning and 1/8 tsp pepper.
In a large resealable plastic bag, combine the flour, seasoned salt and remaining pepper. Add chicken, a few pieces at a time, and shake to coat. Place chicken on top of vegetables. Cover and cook on low for 5 hours on low or until chicken juices fun clear. Remove chicken and keep warm.
Stir orzo into vegetable mixture; cover and cook 15-20 minutes longer or until orzo is tender.
Serve topped with Chicken.
Some day I will learn how to take the pleasing pics that everyone else has on their blog, color wise, the plate doesn't look all that, but it really is tasty. I enjoyed it greatly!
