1/2 tsp dried marjoram leaves
1/4 tsp pepper
1 1/2 cups frozen corn, thawed, drained
1 1/2 cups frozen broccoli florets, thawed, drained

In 4- to 6-quart slow cooker, combine all ingredients except corn and broccoli; mix well.

* Chicken thigh meat is better suited for long slow cooking than chicken breast meat. Lighter meat tends to dry out in the slow cooker.
