Baby it’s cold outside!

img_8028Happy New Year’s Eve…it’s freakin cold!!!! (OK… I live in California… but I am cold!)

Today marks day 6 for my campaign to battle health issues.  The cold and icky days are obstacles… so I am looking at winter as a game.  An obstacle course for my ingenuity and creativity.  Oh, I will win…

Today I am clearing out my freezer… fun…not… but I found a bunch of frozen chicken which helps my budget.  I found a crockpot recipe for chicken that I adapted to meet my needs…

I have a sick hubby, a tight budget, & a waist line to shrink!!!! And I dont have to think about what to cook later!!!!

Here is what’s in my crockpot:

Crockpot Chicken and Tomato Soup

4 frozen skinless boneless chicken breast
1 tablespoons Italian Seasoning
1 1/2 teaspoon dried basil
1 cloves garlic, minced
2 teaspoons onion powder
1 cup water
114 oz. can diced tomatoes (no sugar added)
1 cup of low sodium low fat chicken broth
1 tablespoon concentrated tomato paste
1 cup left over spaghizza sauce
Sea Salt and pepper to taste

Put all the above ingredients into the crock-pot, cook for 9 hours on low. After 9 hours take two forks and shred the chicken, set the crock-pot on warm till ready to serve (making sure to taste it before serving to make sure there is enough salt and pepper)

I will add veggies like zucchini and green beans!  This can be packaged up and re-frozen in small servings…  yeah!!!!!

      I am putting them in the last hour…. I read a recipe that put them in at the start, pulled half out, puréed them and added back in for thickener… may try that next time!
