Slow Cooker Caper Chicken

My youngest daughter is a busy stay-at-home mom who always finds time to get together with me on Fridays for lunch.  I try to make meals that are tasty, quick and easy, and reduced in fat and calories.  Here is what we enjoyed last Friday.

This is a tasty low-fat dish adapted from one I found on The Pioneer Woman Cooks.   The count for the chicken and sauce according to my Diet Power software based on 6 servings is:  144 calories, 9.18 g fat, 56.9 mg cholesterol, 1.54 g carb, 0.2 g fiber.  Additions such as rice and vegetables should be counted separately.

SLOW COOKER CAPER CHICKEN

  • 2 boneless-skinless chicken breast halves, each cut into 3 sections
  • ¼ cup lemon juice
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • 3 dashes Greek seasoning
  • ¼ cup melted butter
  • ¼ cup steak sauce (A-1 Steak Sauce)
  • 2 Tblsp. capers in brine

Place the chicken breast pieces in the slow cooker.  Pour lemon juice over the top and sprinkle with black pepper and the Greek seasoning.

In a separate bowl, mix the melted butter with the steak sauce and capers.  Pour this mixture over the chicken breast pieces and cook for 4-6 hours on low.

I served this chicken and sauce with rice and steamed broccoli.

  1. What a nice and tasty low calorie, low fat, and low carb recipe and the bonus of a slow cooker recipe. That it such a nice tradition that you and your daughter have.together on Fridays.

  2. Is Greek Seasoning a blend of herbs? I haven’t heard of it. This looks delicious, and I just happen to have all the ingredients, with the possible exception of the Greek Seasoning. But I have other seasonings!

    1. Greek Seasoning comes packaged in a spice jar – mine is by Spice Islands. Ingredients include dehydrated onion and garlic, salt, mint leaf and “spices”. Here’s a link to a recipe on All Recipes for homemade Greek Seasoning which includes oregano, mint, thyme, basil, marjoram, dried minced onion and dried minced garlic. I’m sure any combination of spices and herbs that you like would be fine.
