Place browned chicken pieces on top of cabbage, onion and peppers. (If I am using chicken breasts, I cut mine in pieces but you can leave them whole) In a bowl whisk together the tomatoes, mushrooms, oregano, black pepper, salt, garlic powder, basil, green chilis and hot sauce. Add the bay leaf and pour over the chicken and cabbage. Cook on low for 7 to 8 hours or high for 4 to 5 hours. Remove bay leaf.
