Slow Cooker Italian Pepperoncini Chicken

2018年8月8日

During my last trip to New Jersey, my girl Natalie told me about a simple way she makes pulled chicken in her crockpot.  I’m literally firing my crockpot up weekly these days, so I came home and tried her recipe out right away.

The result were AMAZING.  If you like Italian beef sandwiches, you’re going to love this version made with chicken.

I topped the slow cooked chicken mixture with some crunchy red cabbage and folded it into a Flatout Foldit wrap, to keep the calories down.  For other meals, I built a bowl with quinoa, cabbage, and spinach.  I even made it into a salad.  This dish is very versatile, and I bet it would even make a mean taco.  Get creative!

For my friends on Weight Watchers, this recipe is clocking in as ZERO points for 1 serving, and TWO points for the entire recipe.  Note:  I don’t claim to be a WW expert, so please double check any of my calculations as needed.
