Chicken Crockpot Cassoulet

Updated: Feb 26

Here is yet another scrumptious recipe that my mom taught me - Chicken Crockpot Cassoulet! Have you ever tried a cassoulet? A cassoulet is a french stew containing meat & beans, & it's pretty delicious no matter which way you cook it! Below you can find my take on a cassoulet!


Ingredients

  • 2 packs of chicken breasts (about 2 lbs.)

  • 2 chopped leeks

  • 1 cubed sweet potato

  • 1 sliced yellow squash

  • 2 chopped large carrots

  • 1 bunch chopped asparagus 

  • 1 can black beans

  • 1 can pinto beans

  • 4+ cloves garlic - I like to just throw in big garlic chunks

  • 2 cups chicken stock

  • (3x) 5.5oz. Campbell’s tomato juice cans

  • salt & pepper to taste

  • optional: 1-3 shallots (depending on size) - if you really like that biting onion flavor like we do in my house, then you'll enjoy the added scallions!

  • garnish with fresh thyme & tarragon


The Process

  • get all of your ingredients chopped up & sliced!

  • once you've got all of your veggies chopped up, begin to add your ingredients to the crokpot in the following order:

    • I like to add the chicken 1st

    • add in your veggies: leeks, sweet potato, carrots, squash, asparagus, garlic, shallots

    • add in your black & pinto beans (I buy "no salt added" & add the water to the crockpot as well)*

    • mix everything up, & salt/pepper to your liking

  • cook in crockpot for 6 hours - if you do not have the hour settings on your crockpot, cook on either medium or low for 6 hours

  • check about halfway (3 hour mark), & see if you're able to start shredding the chicken

  • be sure to shred your chicken before serving - I simply shred my chicken using 2 forks, it can get a little hot, just a heads up!

  • give everything another mix, & serve once the 6 hours is up!

  • don't forget to top your cassoulet bowls with fresh thyme & tarragon to lend some added flavor


Enjoy this super easy, delicious meal to give yourself a rest from cooking, or just show off how cultured you are with your cassoulet at a dinner party!
