Please help. I have to contribute a large main dish to a club pot luck lunch. Someone else is making lasagna. There was a suggestion for having an Italian theme but it was agreed that not everyone likes tomatoes. I have already purchased boneless chicken thighs and will make a chicken pot pie-like recipe to serve over rice if I can't come up with something better. Most of the slow cooker chicken recipes I have researched require canned soup. I'd prefer not to use canned soup but I'm wavering. I thought rice would help stretch the meal. Adding vegetables would also help stretch the meat.
Plan B would be to make a chicken dish at home using the oven or stove top and only use the crock pot to warm it up. There are no cooking facilities at our meeting location.
