Have you heard of Fab Fit Fun? It is a women’s lifestyle newsletter that was created by Giuliana Rancic. They send out newsletters just about every day, and yesterday I was featured as one of their favorite YouTube trainers!
Recipe: Crock Pot Chicken Cacciatore
This week, I made a new I put together a keeper of a recipe. Roomie already requested it again. I showed you in a YouTube video how I loved making Crock Pot Salsa Chicken and a few readers suggested making it with pasta sauce. I took them up on their suggestion and made a batch using Trader Joe’s Organic Mushroom Pasta Sauce. I only added 1/2 the jar.
After the chicken was done cooking, I sautéed onions in a frying pan on low for 10 minutes until they were limp. Then I added frozen, sliced tri-color bell peppers. Once those were cooked all the way through, I added in a tablespoon of capers, a cup of cooked chicken and extra pasta sauce. I served my chicken on a bed of Shirataki Noodles and roomie’s on a plate of pasta.
It was sweet, salty and delicious! I already made another batch and bought an eggplant this weekend so I can serve it on eggplant noodles later this week. What do I have against pasta? When following the Tone It Up diet plan, there are no carbs after 3 pm! Of course when I go to an Italian restaurant I don’t follow the rules but at home, I do try.
It’s kind of like Chicken Cacciatore and I highly recommend trying it if you love your crock pot like I do. I suppose you could add the veggies to the crock pot 1/2 way through the cooking but I like how the onions sort of caramelized in the pan.
