Easy and Delicious Slow Cooker Cassoulet

smart cookie

"I am married to a chef, but I can't cook. So I make a lot of food in my slow cooker when it's my night to cook. We love France and French cooking, and this recipe is a wonderfully simple, elegant cassoulet that even I can make and he loves. Wonderful for cold nights and dinner parties. Double the recipe for leftovers - it melds overnight very well."

  1. Heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat and cook bacon until crisp and brown, turning often, about 10 minutes. Remove bacon and drain on paper towels; crumble when cool. Set bacon aside.
  2. Cook and stir onion in the same skillet until translucent, about 5 minutes. Stir in chicken, sausage, garlic, thyme, bay leaves, and black pepper; cook until chicken pieces are browned, 5 to 8 minutes. Stir in tomato paste.
  3. Transfer chicken mixture to a slow cooker and stir in crumbled turkey bacon, great Northern beans, and diced tomatoes. Cover the cooker, set on Low, and cook until cassoulet is thickened and the chicken is very tender, 4 to 5 hours. Sprinkle with parsley before serving.


  • Easy Cleanup
  • Try using a liner in your slow cooker for easier cleanup.

I cooked it in a dutch oven at 325 for an hour instead of using a slow cooker and it came out great!

Everyone in my family loved this. I used turkey bacon and kielbasa. The only other ingredient change I made was to add carrots. Using a slow cooker for me is about the ease of preparing the mea...
