Place chicken thighs in bottom of crockpot. Layer veggies on top. In a bowl, combine tomato sauce, paste, diced tomatoes and seasonings. Stir to combine. Pour over veggies and chicken and cook on low till chicken is cooked through and veggies are to your liking. Serve over rice, pasta or potatoes.
You can take out certain veggies if you like. I actually added the zucchini and carrots from the original recipe to give us more veggies in this dish. And I adjust the seasoning to my liking as well.
