Ingredients

  • 2 lbs. (32 oz.) chicken breasts, boneless and skinless
  • 1 cup salsa, homemade or purchased
  • 1 cup petite diced canned tomatoes (choose low-sodium)
  • 2 tbsp. taco seasoning
  • 1 cup onions, diced fine
  • 1/2 cup celery diced fine
  • 1/2 cup carrots, shredded (you can leave these out if you are concerned about the carbs)
  • 3 tbsp. sour cream, reduced fat (can use regular sour cream if you like)

Directions

Place the chicken in a slow cooker. Sprinkle the taco seasoning over the meat and then layer the vegetables and salsa on top. Pour a half cup water over the mixture, set on low and cook for 6-8 hours. The meat is cooked when it shreds or reaches an internal temperature of 165°F. When ready to serve, break up the chicken with two forks then stir in the sour cream.

Makes eight 1 cup servings.
