I love slow cooker recipes. Just put it all in a pot and walk away until dinner. Works well for those busy days. For me personally I like the extra time I get working out in the afternoons not having to worry about starting dinner. 1/2 cup is 3 weight watcher points (old) serve with half a weight watchers pita and side salad and you have a full balanced dinner. Just make sure to count you points.
1 1/2 lb. raw Boneless Lean Chicken Thighs or Breast (I personally like and used Thighs)
1 can Tomato Paste (I used Garlic and Herb)
1 1/4 cup of water
1/2 cup ketchup
2 tbsp. plus 2 tsp. brown sugar (not packed)
2 tbsp. plus 2 tsp. cider vinegar
2 tsp. garlic powder
Red pepper flakes
Place all ingredients except the chicken in the crock pot. Stir until mixed.
Add chicken and coat well with the sauce.
Cover and cook on high for 3 – 4 hours or on low for 7 – 8 hours, until chicken is fully cooked.
Remove all the chicken and place it in a bowl. Shred each piece using two forks.
Return the shredded chicken to the crock pot, and mix well with the sauce.
I love using my Slow Cooker mainly because any meal we cook in it is usually a new recipe. Here’s an easy slow cooker chicken stew recipe I found on line. This dish will feed a family of 4. Each serving is 1.5 cups and contains only 4 weight watcher points. Serve with my Low Fat Cornmeal Muffin recipe and you have a filling healthy dinner the whole family will enjoy.
1lb boneless, skinless Chicken Thighs cut into bite-sized pieces
8oz Mushrooms, sliced
1 Onion large, finely chopped
1/2 cup Carrots, cut into matchsticks
1/2 cup fresh or frozen Peas
2 stalks of Celery, chopped
1 packet powdered Mushroom Sauce seasoning mix or gravy
2 cups Fat Free/Low Sodium Chicken Broth
3 cloves Garlic, minced
1 tsp Salt
1/2 tsp Pepper
1 cup Plain, Non-Fat Greek Yogurt, at room temp
In a crock pot, combine all ingredients except for the yogurt.
Cook on low for 4-6 hrs.
Stir in yogurt, and warm until heated through, about 5 minutes. Serve and Enjoy.
