Sunday Slow Cooker: Chicken and Sweet Potato Stew


Now that Summer's winding down and Fall is officially here, I'll be featuring a new series called Sunday Slow Cooker, with a set of easy-to-make one-pot recipes.

Today's hearty recipe calls for sweet potatoes and slow-cooked chicken thighs that'll be falling-off-the-bone tender by the time you return to the crockpot hours later.
