Crock pot Chicken Italian style

The title introduces what I'm fixing today! I have a busy day of shopping ahead of me, and I would like something to come home to instead of having to fix it or making someone else to fix it.
Here are the ingredients for 5 people:

5-6 chicken legs
5-6 chicken thighs

1/2 bell pepper, thinly sliced
1 zucchini, chopped
1 onion, chopped
8 cloves garlic, minced or crushed
2 stalks celery, minced

1 teaspoon sugar
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1 teaspoon onion powder
1 tablespoon dried basil
1-2 teaspoon(s) freshly ground salt
1 teaspoon ground black pepper
1 teaspoon paprika
1 teaspoon ground rosemary

1 teaspoon olive oil
1 cup chicken broth
1 can tomato sauce

Lay chicken down into crock pot. Combine vegetables, spices and liquid in a large measuring cup or bowl, then pour over the chicken. Cover with lid. 
If you are planning on starting it in the morning for your supper, turn it on high for 1 hour, then reduce it to low for the rest of the day.
If you are doing this 2-3 hours before eating, I would suggest keeping it on high for the entire time.
Serve with fresh bread or pasta; or fry up some potatoes last minute. It's up to you! :)
