  Finely chopped green bell pepper 1⁄2 Cup (8 tbs)
  Garlic 2 Clove (10 gm), minced or pressed
  Diced baked ham 2 Cup (32 tbs)

  Thyme 1 Teaspoon
  Baking soda 1⁄4 Teaspoon

Rinse and sort through beans.
In a deep 3 1/2- to 4-quart pan, bring water to a boil over high heat.
Add beans.
Let water return to a boil; then boil, uncovered, for 2 minutes.
Remove pan from heat, cover, and let stand for 1 hour.
Drain and rinse beans, discarding cooking water.
While beans are standing, in a 4-quart or larger electric slow cooker, combine onion, carrot, bell pepper, garlic, ham, bay leaf, thyme, and baking soda.
Rinse chicken, pat dry, and coat with flour.
Add beans to cooker; distribute chicken pieces over beans, then pour in broth.
Cover and cook at low setting until meat near thighbone is very tender when pierced and beans are very tender to bite (8 to 9 hours).
Gently stir in tomato, tomato paste, and salami.
Increase cooker heat setting to high; cover and cook until mixture is heated through (20 to 25 more minutes).
