Ingredients

  •  2-1/2 pounds frozen, boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • 1-1/4 cups canned tomato puree
  • 2 medium sweet onions
  • 3 medium carrots
  • 3 bell peppers
  • 1 hot pepper
  • 6 garlic cloves
  • 1/2 teaspoon cumin

Preparation

  1. Thaw chicken. In a large Crock-Pot® combine the tomato puree and chicken.

  4. Remove chicken to a plate. Using 2 forks, shred chicken then return to sauce in the Crock-Pot®. 

Helpful hints

  • Select the type of hot pepper based on heat desired.
  • Serve shredded chicken over rice or on buns.
  • For a lower protein diet decrease portion to 1/2 cup and count as 2 meat choices.
