Low Carb Slow Cooker Chicken

My husband and I aren't picky eaters.  We could eat similar meals every day and not really get bored.  As long as we eat adequate amounts of protein throughout the day, small snacks in between and drink LOTS of water, we're A-OK!

On a side note, I'm thrilled to share that I am still enjoying the results of my last It Works! Wrap.  It was a GREAT way to keep me motivated to eat the right foods and continue drinking adequate amounts of water each day.  It's hard to cheat when you see those kind of results.

Since I am working on eating healthier, reducing inflammation and getting back in shape (check out my results so far), I thought I would share one of the easiest recipe I make.

Low Carb Simple Slow Cooker Chicken
adapted from Sparks

2 cups chicken broth (low sodium or homemade)
1 large carrot, chopped

1 large potato, diced

3 stalks celery, diced

1 large onion, chopped

½ cup tomato sauce (low sodium or homemade)
2 cups water

28 ounces chicken breast

1 teaspoon cayenne pepper

½ teaspoon marjoram

½ teaspoon black pepper

½ teaspoon chili powder

½ teaspoon basil

3 cloves garlic, chopped or crushed


Add everything to your slow cooker.

Cook on High for 4 hours or Low for 8 hours.

Serve Hot!

**You could easily add in cooked Quinoa or low-carb pasta at the end if this is too boring**
