This one is so easy to make, I used fresh tomatoes instead to avoid the sodium. Submitted by:

I make up my own sauce and freeze it that is low in sodium. May definitely give this a try soon. I like the idea of adding chickpeas and other vegetables and making it more like a stew. Submitted by:

This was really good and super easy, I paired it with whole wheat spaghetti. I had a ton leftover so I added a cup of low sodium chicken broth to about 1-1/2 servings and turned it into a soup for leftovers the next day. Thanks for the post, would make it again! Submitted by:

I used too much marinara sauce and it came out ver watery. I'll pay attention next time, also I think I'll add a little more spices to the veggies. I appreciate a recipe low in saturated fat so I may try it again. Submitted by:

I added dried onions and some garlic/herb and everyone used salt at the table. It was a wonderful meal to come home to from church. We served it over rice. Submitted by:

I loved this! never been a big user of my crock pot but loved how this turned out! I used homemade marinara, added 3 bayleaves and some extra garlic as well as a dash of no-salt seasoning; served over brown rice. entire family loved it! Submitted by:

I have made this several times. You can use any veggies you have, I never follow the recipe any more. I think the key is using a spaghetti sauce w/o added sugar instead of marinara for more flavor. If you use frozen chicken you will have too much liquid. We shred and serve over spaghetti squash. Submitted by:

Love this recipe. I used 2 cans tomatos and omitted the marinara sauce entirely to decrease the sugar. Out of zucc and peppers this morning so I used eggplant and it worked very well! Thank you to chef Meg for this! Submitted by:

I loved this recipe and so did my kids. It's easy to put together and is good over whole wheat pasta or brown rice. I think next time I'll throw in a couple handfuls of baby spinach leaves. I topped it with a little parmesan cheese and that really made it awesome without adding additional salt. Submitted by:

So easy and was a hit with the family. Easy to change with spices and using ingredients on hand. Served it over whole wheat noodles. Can't believe it is on 164 calories per serving! Yeah! will make this again and again. Submitted by:

I found this bland tasting. I even added the garlic powder and salt that someone else recommended doing. Submitted by:

My husband LOVED this, but I did make a few tweaks. I used boneless/skinless thighs instead of breasts (they hold up better in a slow cooker and aren't too much higher in cal/fat), 6 big cloves of garlic, doubled the zucchini and skipped pepper/celery and 1/8 tsp of allspice. It freezes very nicely. Submitted by:
