I whipped this up on a day that I was wanting a home-cooked meal, but had no time to cook. We were going out for the day but wanted to come home and have a fast, healthy dinner. This is the answer. Serves 4.
4 boneless skinless chicken breasts
1 tsp paprika
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1/2 tsp onion powder
1/2 tsp black pepper
12 red potatoes, cut in half
Mix together the paprika, garlic powder, onion powder and black pepper. Rub all over the chicken breasts, making sure to coat well.
Spray a frying pan with nonstick spray and set on high heat. When pan is hot enough, put all four breasts in it to sear for about 3 minutes. To check if pan is hot enough, I put a drop of water in, and if it dances and fizzes out, it's hot enough. Flip the chicken and sear the other side. You want it just slightly blackened.
Spray the crock with nonstick spray. Set in the seared chicken breasts. Put the potatoes on top and sprinkle the paprika mix on top. Cover and cook on low for 6 hours, high for 4 hours.
Dinner is ready! About 9 points per serving. A serving size would be a chicken breast and 3 potatoes. Yummy!
Simple, easy and nutritious meal! I simply mix everything in the crockpot before bed and my family wakes up to a divine breakfast! Serves 8.
2 cups dry oats (preferably steel cut oats)
1 cup brown sugar
1.5 tsp ground cinnamon
2 cans evaporated milk
3.5 cups water
Spray the crock with nonstick spray. Now mix together in the crock the oats, brown sugar and cinnamon. Make sure there aren't any sugar lumps. Add the milk and water, and stir well.
Cook on low for 6-8 hours. Go to bed. When you wake up, yummies await!
Stir well before serving. About 10 points a serving! If you use fat free evaporated milk it will be down to 8 points! Have at it!
