"This is a light, juicy, flavorful dish. Being a mom of a 7 month old, I've learned to take a lot of shortcuts and still be able to cook quality food. This is quick, easy, and tasty. If you absolutely must use fresh veggies, that's ok, but frozen veggies, in my opinion, work a little bit better. Serve with rice, if desired. To kick it up a bit, add chopped green peppers in with the tomatoes." — Erin

skinless, boneless chicken breast halves
ground black pepper, or to taste
onion powder, or to taste
1 (28 ounce) can
chopped stewed tomatoes, 1/2 the liquid reserved
1 (14 ounce) can
1 (10 ounce) package
frozen mixed vegetables
I put all the ingredients in the crock pot before work. When I came home, the house smelled wonderful! I followed the recipe as written (except I used diced tomatoes pre-seasoned with basil, garlic and oregano). A definite keeper! Tastes great over rice!
My husband and I were looking for some healthy recipes, and I came across this one.. I had to try it because I love stewed tomatoes. The chicken and tomatoes were pretty good, but in our opinion the vegetables did not go well with the dish at all. If we do try this recipe another time I will try serving it over rice.
I think the publisher of this recipe made a mistake when stating to use a TABLESPOON of pepper and 3 TABLESPOONS of onion powder??? I just seasoned the meat to my taste adding just a little extra pepper & onion powder and used all the liquid from the canned tomatoes. I also added a level tablespoon of sugar & salt to taste after adding all liquids. Omitted the frozen vegetables and just served with white rice and drizzled some of the liquid on the rice. All in all it came out superb and is definitely a keeper.
I ended up not having the chicken broth so i just used the sauce from the tomatoes and i'm not a big fan of the onion powder so i used adobo instead either way it came out terrific it was very tender and i punctured the meat to allow everything to soak into it. my boyfriend loved it so really that is all that matters!! :) this is def on the top of my list of recipes!
did the recipe exactly. (3tblsp onion powder is NOT too much)
put veg in casserole
put chicken on top
put tomato juices on top
then, know what???
yes it cried, for
put about 3/4 cup grated cheddar on top and was pretty as well as good
This has lots of potential. It's a good simple recipe and with a 15 month old, i need to simplify my life. However, I found that there needed more spices. I added garlic powder, italian seasoning and chili peppers to give it a little kick. I also did not have oinion powder, so I added real oinions to dish while sauteing the chicken. Added chick peas and sliced black olives (b/c I love these in tomato dishes) I also doubled the chicken as dish has too much tomato for my family's tastes. I also did not add the chicken stock and just put the whole can of tomato in. I just let the whole thing simmer to reduce the liquid and make the dish thicker.
Thank you very much for the submission this was yummy!
My one major complaint about this recipe - the chicken was so tender, when I tried to pick it up with a fork to put on a plate, it fell apart. LOL Seriously, though, this recipe was pretty good. I didn't have any chicken broth on hand, so I used 2 cups of water, a carrot, a piece of celery, and an onion, cut into big chunks; just fish out the chunks before serving. I also added salt. I think next time, I'll also add a can of tomato paste. But, all in all, this is a fantabulous recipe.
This chicken is awesome! It is so tender and flavorful, and I think the longer you let it simmer, the softer the chicken becomes. It's perfect over rice or egg noodles, with any veggies you like. It's an easy hit for the whole family.
