The recipe I made in the video is from America's Test Kitchen, I have put the whole recipe below in case anyone would like to try it.

RECIPE:
Slow-Cooker Cajun-Style Chicken with Sausage and Corn
Serves 6

INGREDIENTS
12 bone-in, skin-on chicken thighs (5 to 6 ounces each), trimmed of any yellow or white fat (see note)
Salt and ground black pepper
2 tablespoons vegetable oil, plus more as needed
2 medium onions, chopped medium
6 medium garlic cloves, minced or pressed through a garlic press (about 2 tablespoons)
2 cups low-sodium chicken broth
1 pound kielbasa sausage, sliced into 1-inch pieces
1 tablespoon minced fresh thyme leaves or 1 teaspoon dried
½ teaspoon cayenne pepper
4 ears corn, husks and silk removed, cut into 2-inch lengths (see note)
¼ cup unbleached all-purpose flour
1 (12-ounce) jar roasted red pepper, rinsed and cut into 1-inch strips (about 1 1/2 cups)
¼ cup minced fresh parsley leaves

*BEFORE YOU BEGIN
Although we prefer the texture and flavor of chicken thighs here, you can substitute 6 bone-in, skin-on chicken breasts; the cooking time will remain the same, but the meat will be a bit drier. Don’t substitute frozen corn here, as it will have a mushy texture and will add little flavor. Serve this spicy Cajun stew with hot sauce and a crusty loaf of bread or white rice to help sop up the sauce.

1
INSTRUCTIONS
Pat the chicken dry with paper towels and season with salt and pepper. Heat the oil in a 12-inch skillet over medium-high heat until just smoking. Brown half of the chicken on both sides, 5 to 8 minutes per side, reducing the heat if the pan begins to scorch. Transfer the chicken to a plate, leaving the fat in the pan. When cool enough to handle, remove the browned skin from the thighs and discard. Transfer the chicken to the slow cooker. Return the pan with the fat to medium-high heat and repeat with the remaining half of the chicken.

2
Pour off all but 1 tablespoon fat from the pan. (Add additional oil to equal 1 tablespoon if needed.) Add the onions and 1/4 teaspoon salt and cook until softened, 5 to 7 minutes. Stir in the garlic and cook until fragrant, about 30 seconds. Stir in 1 1/2 cups of the broth, scraping up any browned bits, and bring to a simmer. Pour into the slow cooker.

3
Add the kielbasa, thyme, and cayenne to the slow cooker. Cover and cook on low for 3 hours. Quickly nestle the corn into the slow cooker around the edges, replace the cover, and continue to cook until the chicken is tender, about 1 hour longer.

4
Transfer the chicken to a large serving dish and tent loosely with foil. Set the slow cooker to high. Whisk the remaining 1/2 cup broth and the flour together until smooth, then stir into the slow cooker. Add the roasted red peppers, cover, and continue to cook until the sauce is thickened and no longer tastes of flour, 15 to 30 minutes longer.

5
Stir in the parsley and season with salt and pepper to taste. Spoon the vegetables, sausage, and some of the sauce over the chicken and serve, passing the remaining sauce separately.

I (Candice~Marie) harvest some of my jalapenos and I pickle them. I explain the best way to handle curing your eyes from the burn if you accidentally touch your eyes after handling jalapenos.

My blog post with recipe: https://pure-american-glory.com/2020/08/23/gardening-picking-pickling-jalapenos/

We've got Zinnias highlighting the activities of Sandhill cranes, butterflies, hummingbirds and cats! This is the first year in 48 years I've gone to town with Zinnias because I was not familiar with them until recently. Take a break from the seriousness of life and experience a short 3 minutes of peacefulness that ends with a beautiful sunset. I've found Zinnias are great for attracting pollinators as well as contributing to the beauty of the area and the deer don't eat them. You can't go wrong with Zinnias. Enjoy!

I (Candice~Marie) and Allan define "Toad Choker" and explain why your gardens will love it!
