    A good trick so the chicken is not sitting in the grease is:
    1. set the chicken on balls of foil
    2. set the chicken on potatoes that are double wrapped in tinfoil (this way you have some baked potatoes too!!)

    You can cook a whole chicken too. Just remove neck etc, wash and toss in the pot with whatever spices you desire. You get tender and jucy meat that is cheep and can be eaten and or added to other recipes.

    Are you kidding? This sounds super healthy and delicious! O.O 144 calories. That's under 300 for a big portion.
    And my chili recipe (will go up on Healthy Doesn't Mean Boring... at some point)

    Chili Con Carne - Very flavorful, but not overly spicy. Add more cayenne if you like to burn your mouth.

    Throw it all in the pot and cook on low for 8-10 hours (or your entire work day + commute. :bigsmile: )

    Ihave two very simple and very yummy:

    Salsa Beef or Chicken

    I either use about 4 chicken breast or more or a lean london broil. I add a cup of salsa and cook on low all day and walah!

    It's done!

    I use for taco meat, nachos or kids just eat the meat plain it is soooooo goood. We prefer the beef but both are so easy and soooo yummy!

    The other is pulled pork -

    I put a lean pork roast in with enough BBQ sauce to cover it sometimes I will add a half of a beer, let it cook all day and you have yummy pulled pork. Low in calories and high in flavor...another favorite of the kids.

    I have more but these two are the best me...I kow it sounds too good to be true! But it is true!

    My favorite breakfast. I substitute margarine for the butter, abd I add either an entire apple or a can (10.75 oz) of pumpkin puree to a double batch. This also freezes well!!


    1 cup steel cut oats
    3 1/2 cups water
    1 cup peeled and chopped apple
    1/2 cup raisins
    2 tablespoons butter
    1 tablespoon ground cinnamon
    2 tablespoons brown sugar
    1 teaspoon vanilla extract


    Place the steel cut oats, water, apple, raisins, butter, cinnamon, brown sugar, and vanilla extract into a slow cooker, and stir to combine and dissolve the sugar. Cover the cooker, set to Low, and allow to cook 6 to 7 hours (for firm oats) or 8 hours (for softer texture).

    Made this last week and it was delicious - will definitely be making this again! :-)

    From Fitness Magazine:


    8 ounces skinless, boneless chicken-breast halves
    16 ounce package frozen bell peppers and onions
    8 ounces smoked turkey sausage, halved lengthwise and cut into 1/2-inch slices
    2 cups water
    1 14 1/2 ounce can diced tomatoes with jalapeno peppers, undrained
    8 ounce package jambalaya rice mix
    Cut chicken into 1/2-inch strips. Place frozen vegetables in a 3-1/2- or 4-quart slow cooker and top with chicken strips and turkey sausage. Add water, undrained tomatoes, and seasoning packet from rice. Cover and cook on low-heat setting for 5 to 6 hours or on high-heat setting for 2 1/2 to 3 hours. Stir in rice. Cover and cook about 45 minutes more (if using low-heat setting, turn to high-heat setting), or until most of the liquid is absorbed and the rice is tender.
