"This Slow Cooker Italian Chicken Stew is a comforting and flavorful dish that combines tender chicken, a medley of vegetables, and aromatic Italian seasoning. The stew simmers slowly in the crock pot, allowing the flavors to meld together for a delicious and satisfying meal. Serve it with your favorite crusty bread or cooked rice for a complete and hearty dinner. Note: If you don't have corn on the cob to slice, you can sub with frozen or canned corn (or omit the corn, if you don't like it)."
