Slightly Italian Chicken


Slightly Italian Chicken recipe













Low Fat, Low in Saturated Fat, Low Cholesterol, Cholesterol-Free, Trans-fat Free, Low Carb


1 x nonstick cooking spray
4 large chicken breast halves, boneless, skin-on
1 can mushrooms, canned
1 can artichoke hearts
1 bunch scallions, spring or green onions
1 tablespoon tapioca
quick cooking kind
2 tablespoons lemon juice
1 teaspoon oregano
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1 envelopes chicken broth, low salt
cup salad dressing, italian, low-fat
low calorie
½ cup white wine
1 teaspoon worcestershire sauce


Spray crock inside with Vegetable Spray.

Place drained mushrooms, drained artichoke hearts and chopped green onions in bottom of crockpot.

Sprinkle vegetables with a heaping Tablespoon of quick- cooking tapioca and 1 envelope of chicken bouillon (I use MBT brand of low- sodium chicken bouillon, but any will do).

If you're using granulated bouillon, use about a heaping teaspoon.

Place well-washed and dried boneless chicken breasts (all skin and fat removed).

Combine remaining sauce ingredients and pour on top of chicken and vegetables.

Cover and set crockpot on High.

Cook 5 to 6 hours or until tender. The tapioca thickens the sauce while it cooks (you can't even guess the tapioca is in there later).

I used Minute Maid fresh frozen lemon juice because I don't like the taste of Real-Lemon and I didn't have a fresh lemon on hand.

** I use Angostura brand low-sodium worcestershire
