I made this simple but delicious recipe in my crockpot but you may cook it in a large pot. A nice change of pace from boiled or baked chicken.
1 red or green pepper
1/2 cup jarred banana peppers (optional)
1/2 cup sliced black olives
2 Tbsp garlic, minced
chicken legs or thighs
1/2 tsp paprika
1/3 cup lemon juice
1 1/2 Tbsp cornstarch
In my slower cooker I combined the cut up pepper, banana pepper rings and garlic and put on the bottom of the pan.
I added my clean and dry chicken pieces, poured in lemon juice and sprinkled on paprika.
Cover and cook on low setting for about 6 hours.
Lift chicken out and keep warm on serving dish while increasing pot to high and adding the cornstarch mixed with 2 tablespoons of cold water to the pot. Stir 2 to 3 minutes and wait about 10 minutes while it thickens a little.
Season to taste with salt.
Serve chicken with the thickened sauce poured over it. Tasted great with the greens too! No salad dressing needed!
