Slow Cooker Chicken Surprise

     This week,in yet another attempt to eat more healthily, I have been trying to create meals without sugar, salt, or fats/oils. It's been hard. I thought that we ate relatively healthy, but it has been difficult to find things to make. Everything has oil in it...even if it's just to keep your food from sticking to your pan.
     My first new recipe attempt is somewhere between success and failure. This chicken was OK; I guess that is the "surprise." My husband described it as, "Fancy," whatever that means. It was definitely flavorful, but I just couldn't put my finger on what it was missing. If I made this again, I would mess with the seasonings and try to find what was missing. I would also wait to add the zucchini at the end of the cooking instead of letting them sit in the crock pot all day. I don't really like soggy vegetables.

2-3 lbs chicken
1 onion, chopped
2 tomatoes, diced
2 c zucchini, diced
1 c mushrooms, chopped
1/2 c wine (I used red)
8 oz tomato sauce (no salt added)
1 tsp parlsey
1 Tbl Italian seasoning
2 tsp garlic, minced
1/4 tsp each: red pepper, thyme, oregano, rosemary, ginger, cinnamon, paprika, and garlic powder
  • Throw everything into the slow cooker and cook on low for 5-6 hours. 
  • Serve over brown rice.
