Low Sodium Mexican Chicken Stew in Slow Cooker

Submitted by: APRILDAWN678

Introduction

Similar concept to another recipe of mine, and other popular recipes on this site, but this recipe uses low sodium ingredients, and is still very tasty! I freeze leftovers in small microwaveable containers, and place them back in the refridgerator the day before I want to reheat them.

Ingredients

    4 Frozen Chicken Breasts (or 20 Frozen Chicken Tenders)
    1 Can Green Giant No Salt Added Whole Kernel Corn
    1 Can Nature's Promise Organic Dark Kidney Beans
    1 Can Nature's Promise Organic Black Beans
    1 Can Tomatos with No Salt Added, Diced
    1 Onion, Diced
    1 Green Pepper, Diced
    1 Can Tomato Sauce with No Salt Added
    2 Tablespoons Chili Powder
    2 Teaspoons Onion Powder
    2 Teaspoons Ground Cumin
    1 Teaspoon Garlic Powder
    1 Teaspoon Paprkia
    1 Teaspoon Ground Oregano

Directions

Place frozen chicken breasts (or tenders) in slow cooker. Add remaining ingredients, and stir gently, leaving chicken on bottom. Cook on high for 4-5 hours. If you used chicken breasts, you can remove them and shred or chop them and add back to stew. I leave the chicken tenders in as they are, and mix the stew up well.

Sometimes I add a small can of diced chili peppers to spice it up, but I did not include in this recipe because the sodium is deceiving. If you rinse them well, most of the salt rinses off, but I have no accurate nutritional info for this.

If you use fresh chicken, cook on high 3-4 hours.

Makes 12 servings, 3/4 cup each.

    WINNER, WINNER CHICKEN DINNER! :)

    I thought this was a really great dish, especially since I'm a weekend cooker for the week. Will probably add chiles or jalapenos next time, but definitely a yummy, easy dish for someone like me that needs to watch her sodium. THANK YOU! - 2/12/12

  • Thank you for posting this low sodium dish. It was really easy and yummy. I love how you use frozen chicken (I tend to forget to take the chicken out of the freezer in time to set up my crock pot in the morning.) I served it over brown rice. - 4/27/12
