Cassoulet, Slow Cooker

by angelaskitchen on May 3, 2007

This isn’t authentic cassoulet by any means, however, I generally don’t have a duck laying around in my fridge.  This does the trick for us and is very tasty and easy.

Slow Cooker Cassoulet
Recipe type: gluten free, dairy free, gfcf, slow cooker, chicken & turkey, sausage
Serves: 8
  • 8 oz. kielbasa, halved lenghtwise and cut into ½-inch pieces (be sure GFCF, nitrate free prefered)

  3. Add the carrots, peppers, onions and garlic to the pan, pour in ½ cup of the chicken broth and cook for 2 minutes, scraping the bottom. Remove from the heat and put into slow cooker with chicken and sausage. Stir in the beans and undrained tomatoes.
  4. In a separate bowl combine the rest of the chicken broth, white wine, thyme and red pepper. Pour into the slow cooker.
