Chicken Vegetable Stew

I saw this on my friend's blog here. She is a health nut and I love sweet potatoes.

1 clove garlic, minced
1/2 cup diced yellow onion
1/2 tablespooon olive oil sauteing
2 boneless skinless chicken breasts cut into 1 inch cubes
1 cup peeled and sliced sweet potatoes, 1 inch slices (I think I did about 2 cups)
2 carrots, peeled and sliced
1 rib celery, diced
1/4 tsp sea salt
1/2 tsp black pepper
1/8 tsp allspice
1/2 tsp paprika
1 bay leaf
1 cup of frozen peas, no sugar added
2 cups fat free low sodium chicken broth
1 (14.5oz) can diced tomatoes, no salt added
I put everything in the crockpot because we were going to Sea World. I didn't use peas, and since I didn't have canned tomatoes (?!?) I used the last of the cherry tomatoes from a big container from Sam's. The consistency of the sweet potatoes was a little too mushy for my taste the first night, but the leftovers were amazing! I would probably leave the sweet potatoes out until the last two hours if I was eating it that night. The allspice gives it a unique 'not your average stew' flavor! Enjoy!!
