WIAW – Crock Pot Chicken my way

by Eva @ Committed2Nutrition on October 3, 2012

Wednesday already? Or is it just me thinking this week is going by?

Last night was Double Zumba, and boy am I BEAT. I have added a Monday Zumba Class so that brings my total to FIVE classes a week right now. No bueno. Not good for my body or how hard it is to keep up caloric wise. After next week, I have given up my 2nd Tuesday class, so going forward it is back to 4. Phew. I hate to do that but it was just time. Breaks.my.heart.

Thanks to Jenn at Peas and Crayons for hosting the infamous WIAW (What I ate Wednesday).

Ok enough Zumba.

I really eat sorta boring so I don’t wanna bore you all with daily meals all day long. That gets tedious, and I honestly don’t have the time to take that many pictures of my food OR edit them all come blog post writing time.

Instead, I made an awesome chicken crock pot recipe I wanted to share.

Eva’s Crock Pot Chicken

Ingredients:

  • 1 lb chicken breasts (I used frozen)
  • 2 24 oz containers of low sodium chicken broth
  • 1 medium red onion
  • 3 packets of low sodium chicken bouillon (but felt I should have used 4)
  • LOTS of garlic powder (I didn’t measure)
  • At least 2 TBSP of Trader Joe’s 21 salute seasoning

Since I made this on Saturday I am sure I am missing some things, so wanted to be honest about that. I basically threw chicken in a crock pot with spices, chicken broth, and an onion, since that is what I had on hand. Easy enough.

Directions:

THROW EVERYTHING IN CROCK POT! So simple. I had it on high for 4 hours, then switched to low for at least another 4 hours/until it was time for Nick and I to eat. I am sure just having it on low all day would have worked, too?

This smelled up the whole apartment… in a good way, of course! We could even smell it from the apartment hallway, ha.

Verdict: A+ from Nick. Have I said how PICKY he is? Well he really enjoyed this, so that says a lot.

This will also have a lot of broth left over. We ate this with rice and veggies so we smothered our plates with lots of extra broth. Nick added salt which I highly recommend. Growing up my mother never cooked with salt so I am very sensitive to it’s taste and honestly don’t like it, so I don’t add it when I cook, but I tell everyone who eats my food that they should add it to get some more flavor.

Instead of salt, I added a lot of black pepper and crushed red pepper on top of mine. Can’t wait to try more recipe’s in the Crock Pot!

Questions:

– Are you a salt eater? Do you cook with it or add it after or both?

– What is your favorite crock pot recipe? feel free to post links!

– Are you coming to my MASTER ZUMBA CLASS?!

Hope everyone is having a great Wednesday!
