A mouthwatering spicy low carb slow cooker chicken and vegetables dish.

2 tbsps. paprika
1 tsp. salt
2 tbsps. olive oil
Sprinkle each Breast with Rosemary
4 breasts, bone and skin removed chicken breasts and thighs
1 cup chicken stock
1 cup mushrooms, sliced
3/4 cup chopped onions
2 cups chopped baby zucchini

Brown chicken breasts and thighs in olive oil in a pan on the stove.
Slice baby zucchini and onion into bite sized pieces.
Place chicken at the bottom of the crockpot. Sprinkle half the paprika over.
Cover with onion, baby marrow and mushrooms.
Add the remainder of the olive oil and paprika. Salt to taste.
Pour the chicken stock down the side of the crockpot so that it spreads evenly under the chicken..Cook on low for 6-8 hours.
Note: for a slightly spicy variation add about 2 teaspoons chili powder or masala and 3 fresh green chilies with seeds intact or use Hungarian Hot Paprika for more tang!

So I'm looking for something to put in a slow cooker Sunday early afternoon then have for dinner after I finish studying in the lab, and then have leftovers for the week. I have 5 chicken breasts that are on the smaller side (8-9oz) that I'd like to eat whole, rather than chopping up, for saeity and because I've had a lot of stir fry and pasta typed meals with cubed chicken.

Anyway, normally what I use a slow cooker for are shredded pork/chicken and also soups and chilis, so I'm wondering if there are any suggestions for eating the chicken breasts whole. Preferably with 0 sugar added, lowish in carbs and a very, very huge bonus if it works any of the fall squash varieties into it :)

Some way of perhaps cooking chicken over butternut squash and some other veggies would be awesome, or acorn or spaghetti squash as well.
