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.
