Crockpot Chicken with Veggies

Posted by Solitary Dancer on January 16, 2011

Here’s a recipe I was planning on cooking but have postponed until next weekend.  I’m taking this week to eat leftovers and clean out some stuff in the ‘fridge.

Besides, I’m pretty disgusted since my weight went right back up to my starting point.  Why? I have no idea.  Should I call it a week of bloat and keep going?  I don’t know.  But, I will keep going. If I don’t I will only make matters worse.

Anyway, here’s the recipe.

CROCKPOT CHICKEN WITH VEGGIES

INGREDIENTS:

1/2 pound Cabbage, cut in wedges 
1 medium onion, sliced 
8 oz sliced mushrooms 
2 pounds chicken breasts (skinless) 
2 pounds of chicken thighs (skinless)
   NOTE: it’s cheaper to buy the chicken with the skin on and when it’s about half defrosted you can skin it yourself. 
2 cups of no-sugar added spaghetti sauce (Hunt’s makes a good one) 
Guar of Xanthan Gum (this is used for thickening and is optional. I use Glucomannan powder
Grated Parmesan Cheese (used for topping just before serving)

DIRECTIONS:

1. Put the cabbage, onion, and mushrooms in the crockpot.
2. Put the chicken on top of the vegetables
3. Pour the spaghetti sauce over the top
4. Cover the crockpot and set to LOW
5. Cook for 6 hours
6. Thicken the sauce and serve with grated parmesan cheese

    This sounds very good. Perhaps the weight gain is because you have eaten something high in salt? This happens to me when I eat buffalo wings but within two days it is gone again. Just a thought. Good for you for pressing on. 🙂
