Ham and Chicken Succotash, Easy Slow Cook Recipe
Succotash is a pretty ordinary side dish, but this chicken and ham succotash makes it into a nice main dish and with just a little tweaking, turns it into something to rave about. And if you’re lucky enough to have some fresh or canned corn and baby Lima beans, the amazing flavors are truly something to dream about. And it actually works best in a slow cooker.
So what makes it different? Start with some great ham and nice chunked chicken breasts (you can do them sous vide if you like), add some fresh cream of chicken soup (I make my own, which I have to condense a bit, but you can certainly find store-bought or better yet, something made fresh from some other source), a little red pepper and a little scallion. Add a little (or maybe more) red pepper to spice it up a beat and you’ve got a good, fresh meal.
Oh, and to be sure, get some (or make some) biscuits. They’re essential.
1 lb. skinless, boneless chicken thighs
1 1/2 cups corn
1 1/2 cups baby lima beans
1/2 cup red bell pepper
1 can cream of chicken soup
1/2 cups each diced ham
1/4 cups chopped white part of scallion
1/2 tsp. dried thyme
1/2 tsp. ground red pepper
Mix ingredients in a 3-qt or larger slow-cooker.
Cover and cook on low 4 to 7 hours until chicken and vegetables are tender.
Serve with biscuits.
