SLOW ITALIAN CHICKEN
Makes 6 Servings
1 Serving = 5 PointsPlus™
1 1/2 pounds boneless/skinless chicken breasts2 tsp thyme
1 1/2 tsp oregano
1 can (14 1/2 oz) reduced sodium chicken broth
1 can (14 1/2 oz) diced tomatoes, undrained
1 1/2 cups thinly sliced carrots
1 large onion, thinly sliced and separated
3/4 cup frozen peas
- Cut chicken breasts into chunks. Sprinkle with thyme and oregano.
- Place chicken broth, tomatoes, carrots and onion slices in slow cooker. Top with the chicken. Cover.
- Cook for 8 hours on low OR 4 hours & 20 minutes on high.
- Stir in peas. Cover and cook 15 - 20 minutes more on high.
This can be served 'as is' in a bowl or over noodles....which would add PointsPlus™.
MY SPIN: I would add garlic powder or minced garlic to give this a little more 'oomph'. I would also mix the chicken into the tomatoes, etc., instead of just leaving it laying on top of the 'stuff' because it came out a little on the dry side. If you decide to use noodles, I used the No Yolks.....3 cups......and added them uncooked with the peas and stirred them every 5 minutes or so for the final 15-20 minutes. If you use the No Yolks it'll add 5 PointsPlus™ for a total of 10 PointsPlus™ which might seem high, but it's so worth it and so filling! Or you could serve this over 'stink noodles'.....Shirataki Noodles......4 oz per serving wouldn't add PointsPlus™. I would also probably add more oregano. But everyone's taste buds are different so try it and then alter the spices to your liking!
