I tried a new one last night! McCormick makes Slow Cooker spice packages (they are in the aisle w/ gravies, taco seasoning packets, etc.). Last night I tried the Italian Herb Chicken packet in my crockpot with a few tweaks, and it was SO SO delicious & easy! This is my verison of using this packet:
1 bag of boneless skinless frozen chicken breast
2 cans (14.5 oz) Italian Stewed tomatoes
1 can (6 oz) of tomato paste
1 packet of McCormick Italian Herb Chicken Slow Cooker spice
1 can of sliced black olives
1 clove minced garlic
white wine (for marinade)
shredded mozzerella cheese
Pour white wine into bag of frozen chicken to marinade while thawing. (I did this the night before when I pulled the chicken from my freezer. I left it in the sink to thaw & poured it in the bag the chicken came in rather than dirtying a dish).
When the chicken has thawed, put the tomatoes & paste in the crockpot and stir in the seasoning packet and minced garlic. Mix well. Pour liquid out of chicken bag & place chicken in crockpot. Make sure its covered well. Cook on low for 8 hours or high for 4. In the last 15-30 minutes, stir in black olives, and sprinkle mozzerella cheese on top of chicken to melt.
