Chicken CacciatorePosted: Oct 30 in Recipes by Staff
With Autumn upon us and the weather getting colder, the craving for comfort foods becomes more abundant. But comfort foods do not have to be unhealthy and high calorie for us to enjoy.
Here is a comfort food recipe for the crock pot that is easy to make and tastes delicious: (compliments of a CNC patient)
- 4 chicken breasts (frozen is fine)
- 1 jar marinara sauce (find a sauce that has 50 calories for ½ cup)
- 1 container sliced mushrooms
- 1 white onion, chopped
- 1 eggplant, cubed
- 1 jar capers
- garlic, oregano, basil (to your liking)
Add all ingredients to crock pot and cook. Pour over pasta. If you are watching your starch intake, try sautéed zucchini in place of pasta. To do this, slice zucchini into long strips using a carrot peeler. Sautee the slices in garlic and a little oil.
