I decided I wanted to make something in the Crock pot for dinner because it just simplifies things for me especially since I travel for work. Its not a terribly long commute, but in traffic it can get entirely annoying and put a huge damper on my dinner plans. So to deter that annoyance and being ahead of the game with pre-planning my meals I rely on my Crock pot. A crock pot has truly been a time saver (life saver?) for me for many years. If youre not aware youd be surprised the things you can make in your Crock pot from breakfast items to dessert with everything in between.
I had picked up a McCormick seasoning pack in Italian Herb Chicken and it had been sitting in my pantry cabinet waiting to be used. I was trying to figure out dinner and spotted the packet, realized I had everything needed to make it and onto the dinner menu it went. Originally the packet called for mushrooms but my boyfriend isnt a big mushroom fan so I substituted for onion and peppers.
To make this all I needed was 2 pounds of chicken, two cans diced tomato, one can tomato paste, the McCormick seasoning pack and the vegetables of my choice (peppers and onions). I actually also added minced garlic to the crock pot because I put garlic in almost everything!
After setting my crock pot and forgetting it I found the end product was very much a chicken cacciatore. It was delicious and I did serve this over white rice.
Weight Watcher Point Plus wise I measured out my chicken (3 ounces) and gave it 3 points plus for the chicken with some veggies. My rice (1 cup) was an additional 5 points plus values. 8 Points plus was not bad for a delicious, homemade and simple dinner.
Apologies for not having the plated version photographed I took a picture but my camera was evidentially hungry.
Do you have a Crockpot you use to help simplify cooking?
