Super easy, low-fat, and low-calorie chicken breast. Great to set and forget on a busy day. You really can add just about anything to this recipe. I've tried everything from salsa to wine.

I had intended to make this exactly as written, which I usually do before making changes. I was out of a couple things so I did use Diced Tomatoes with Basil & Garlic, and used packaged Taco Seasoning instead of the Italian Seasoning. This was almost to simple to be so good! The chicken flavor was heavenly, moist & juicy. The leftovers made wonderful sandwiches. I will be using this recipe a lot - probably again this week! Read More

I was running late and just put in the tomatoes and garlic. I wasn't expecting anything amazing, but it was easy. After an epically horrible, terrible, no good very bad day, I came home to a condo smelling heavenly and a fabulous dinner. Read More

This is the first recipe I've tried in my new slow cooker and it was delicious. The chicken breast was so tender, we didn't even need to use a knife! Read More

Very tasty. I cooked mine 1 hour on high and 3 hours on low. You could cut the breasts with a fork. Yummy! Read More

Normally when I try a new recipe from here, I go with what's written and tweak it on subsequent makings. This time around, I decided to experiment from the get-go. We only had two chicken breasts, so I just went with it. I used 3-4 cloves of garlic, 1/2 an onion (which I placed in the bottom of the slow cooker under the chicken) and a Tbsp. of Italian seasoning. I also added 1.5 Tbsp. of aged balsamic vinegar which added a lot of depth of flavor. Because there were only two chicken breasts, I opted for cooking for six hours. This was too long a time for the amount of chicken we had and it came out a little dry. I'll still be making it again as the sauce came out really well. This recipe almost seems like it would be a good basis for Chicken Cacciatore, but I'll have to play with it some more. Looking forward to making this again! Read More

The chicken was tender but I didn't care for the taste. I didn't change a thing. Can't say I will make this again. Read More

I made this simple recipe but it just didn't sound that flavorful so I added the following: I used a 28 oz can of diced tomatoes, some Worcestershire sauce, uncooked brown rice, an entire box of vegetable broth to compensate for the added rice, and 3 tablespoons stick butter set on top of mixture and allowed to seep though ingredients as they cooked. I will admit it turned out tasting a bit on the "rich" side but it sure was good! Sent in my husbands lunch the next day and he said he couldn't wait for lunchtime. Re-heats very well. Will make again it was so easy. Read More
