'Working Moms Slow Cooker' Challenge- Day 1: Healthy BBQ Chicken

Posted by   + Show Post

Today's challenge dinner is Healthy BBQ Chicken.

Ingredients needed:

  • 1 Green Pepper, sliced (about 1 cup)
  • 1/2 Red Pepper, sliced (about 1/2 cup)
  • 1 large Sweet Potato, chopped (about 1 cup)
  • 1 small Zucchini, chopped (about 1 cup)
  • 1 large Onion, chopped (about 1 cup)
  • 1-2 Garlic Cloves, chopped
  • 1 lb Chicken Breasts, thighs or drumsticks
  • 1 Tablespoon, Quick Cooking Tapioca or flour
  • 1-15 oz can of Tomato Sauce
  • 2 Tablespoons of Brown Sugar
  • 1 Tablespoons Worchestershire Sauce
  • 1 Tablespoon Mustard
  •  1/2 teaspoon of salt

You can prepare all of the ingredients the night before and put in the fridge overnight in a gallon size storage bag. You can also double this recipe and put one bag into the freezer for a later time. 

The day you cook this, put all the ingredients into your slow cooker and cook for 4 hours on high or 8 hours on low. You can also add some water or chicken broth to get a little more sauce with it. Serve with rice or pasta. Brown rice or whole grain pasta are good, healthier choices to their 'white' counterparts.

How often do you serve rice or pasta as part of the main course or as a side dish? Will you try this recipe?

I cook rice/pasta several times a week. Will definitely be trying this recipe. The picture made me hungry.

I will definitely try this recipe!

I don't serve a lot of rice because my DD really fights eating it. I am working on getting her to eat it better so I can serve it more often.

We love pasta.

I use rice about 4 out of 7 meals.  Pasta is probably 1 out of 7 meals.  And I always try to use brown rice.  I can't wait to try this recipe tomorrow!
