Ingredients

    1 medium onion, finely chopped

    2 tablespoons no salt added chicken broth

    1 tablespoon minced fresh garlic

    3 tablespoons no salt added chili powder

    2 teaspoons ground cumin

    2 teaspoon Splenda (granulated)

    2 (8 oz) cans no salt added tomato sauce

    1 cup water

    1 lb skinless, boneless chicken breasts

Directions

Combine onion and broth in large saucepan or a French oven. Sweat onion over medium heat until soft and beginning to turn golden (8-10 minutes.) Stir in the garlic, chili powder, cumin, and Splenda and cook until fragrant, about 30 seconds. Stir in the tomato sauce and water, bring to a simmer, and cook until slightly thickened, about 5 minutes. Nestle the chicken into the sauce so it is completely covered. Reduce the heat to medium-low, cover, and cook until the chicken is no longer pink in the center and the thickest part has reached 160 degrees (12-20 minutes depending on size of chicken breasts)
Transfer the chicken to a plate and allow to cool. nce the chicken is cool enough to handle, shred into bite-size pieces. Return to French oven with sauce and warm through.
Serve over rice. Consult Provida.com for serving sizes. I eat approximately 2 oz of chicken, and the sauce is 'free'.

  • Very good. Chicken was very tender & the sauce was nice over rice. The recipe yields quite a bit of sauce too, which is nice. This was not spicy but I like spicy so you could add a bit of red pepper to spice it up for those who like a little hot. - 1/12/09

    Yes Denise, I usually add jalapenos and cayenne pepper. Sometimes I will leave off the rice and just eat it like a spicy hot soup!

  • Myra, can you add something about the serving size on this? I think I can figure it out but the next POPper that comes along may be less experienced in portion size. ~PW - 1/9/09

    Refer to Provida.com for your serving size. My serving size for my body type is 2 oz of meat, and unlimited sauce! Yay!
