Over the past few weeks, I’ve been trying to shake up our daily menus. But, I really need healthy items for our family’s table…evidently its harder to lose weight in your 30’s. Womp, womp. But, luckily, I found this!

Its Easy Crockpot Italian Chicken!

Here’s what you need:

~4 chicken breasts

~1 bottle Fat Free Italian dressing

~6-8 red potatoes

~1/2 chopped onion (or 2/3 a cup frozen onion like I did!)

~1 pkg baby carrots

~1 cup water

 

First, put the thawed chicken breasts into the crockpot and pour the entire bottle of dressing over the chicken. Add the cup of water.

Then, you can either add all of the other ingredients, stir, and cover OR you can do what I did.

I put the veggies in a medium-sized bowl, sprinkled them with sea salt, Italian seasonings, and garlic. I stirred the veggies all together and poured them into the crockpot on top of the chicken.

Seven hours later, we feasted!

This was pretty good! I liked it because I didn’t have to worry about making sides. I just scooped it out on a plate and dinner was served! I think next time I’ll make some rice to go with it. The Italian dressing had such a punch to it that I needed a bland flavor to kind of tone it down. Huff the Hubs LOVED this! So I guess its a winner!

 

Have you ever tried this before? What were your thoughts?

Try It Tuesday

It’s fall, y’all! The temperatures are dropping (although in Oklahoma its felt like mid-summer today) and its time for some hoodies, scarves, and crock pot meals!

(I don’t know about you, but I LURVE my crock pot. I used to use it at least twice a week and not just in the fall and winter.)

I saw this on Pinterest and was super excited because 1. I already had everything to make it (meaning no need to go to the store) and 2. three words: Stove Top Stuffing.

Then, cover and cook on low for four hours!

Unfortunately, I don’t have a picture of the finished product. Why? Because this dish was so stinking good that by the time I thought about taking a picture, every bit of it was GONE! It was sooooooo good! I’m DEFINITELY making this again!
