I don’t think of using the crock pot to cook chicken breasts very often but when I saw this recipe a week or so ago on a blog called Run to Munch, I knew it was a keeper and so I pinned it.. and finally made it. The Captain and I both liked it, A LOT and I am sure it will be a favorite in my kitchen for years to come.
Who doesn’t love easy crock pot dishes? And especially when made with ingredients you likely already have on hand?
I thawed 2 large boneless and skinless chicken breasts and cut them in half to make up this dish…. the prep took about 15 minutes, and 4 hours later we were sitting down to the most tender chicken I have ever eaten. Absolutely delicious. The sauce is really tasty but not overpowering.
I did leave out the olive oil. Instead, I lightly coated the bottom of my crock pot with a non-stick spray… but followed the rest of the recipe and the instructions as written. You can find them here.
As I made it up the N.I. per serving is as follows:
Weight Watchers P+ = 6.
Calories 246; Protein 35g; Carbohydrate 6g; Fat 9g; Fibre 1g.
I stored the leftovers in the fridge and heated them up in the mike for a quick meal a couple of days later. Just as good; just as tender.
Served with roasted kabocha squash and Frenched green beans…
The sauce is so tasty.
The Captain enjoyed his on an oven roasted white potato.
