Zesty Slow Cooker BBQ Chicken

A quick-prep chicken breast recipe that gives a twist to basic barbecue chicken. I throw the chicken breasts in frozen, and serve this with baked potatoes. The sauce makes a great topping for the potatoes. To vary the flavor, try different types of barbecue sauce.Submitted by BIGPAPABERRY

Baked Potato Soup

Finger wiggling scrumptious!

Packed with Vitamin C.

This recipe is higher in fat content than others, so this would be a "cheat" day, or you can substitute turkey bacon bits and non-fat half and half. (If you use turkey bacon, you will have to use a dash of oil for your vegetables)
This is my favorite winter meal - and even on hot days I will take a bowl of this soup!Submitted by AMBERBESSIRE
