Very Good 4.5/5
(27 ratings)

I threw this together from what I had in my pantry at the time. With proper planning, I'd use fat-free soup and sour cream. It is delicious as-is, but fat could certainly stand to be cut.

You can put the chicken into the slow cooker while still frozen, so prep time is virtually non-existent! A great choice to throw in before bed for lunch at work or in the morning for that night's dinner.

This recipe calls for two pounds of chicken, also because it was what I had available (three large breasts), but would make a great meal with just one pound, too.

I served this along with brown rice and black beans. Tasty!

Tomato Soup

This tomato soup is so rich and thick you'll swear it's laden with cream and butter. The trick is really good tomatoes.

Roasted Vegetable Soup
Very Good 4.2/5
(41 ratings)

This is such a hearty savory soup--and it's vegan! The color alone should win you over. By roasting the vegetables you get a sweet smoky smell and taste.

Incredible! 5.0/5

This is a quick take on traditional chicken mole. While you might not normally combine, peanut butter, chocolate and cinnamon with chicken, the results are wonderful!

Very Good 4.8/5
(9 ratings)

Quick and comparitively healthy - I use reduced fat bisquick for the dumplings. Awesomely good and filling - a good comfort food fix with a lot of protein.

NOTE: To make this lower sodium, find a low sodium bisquick alternative.
