Helpful hints

  • Look for reduced-sodium broth containing 500 milligrams sodium or less per 1 cup serving. Avoid low sodium broth that contains potassium chloride—it’s very high in potassium.
  • If desired, make gravy with pan broth.  In a small saucepan mix 1 tablespoon flour with small amount cold water to dissolve.  Turn heat to medium high and stir in broth from slow cooker. Continue stirring 3 to 4 minutes until gravy thickens.

Slow Cooker Chicken with Carrots & Green Beans

Would boneless skinless chicken be ok? Dietitian comment: Yes the recipe calls for boneless, skinless chicken breasts but you could use other parts like chicken thighs. Some people prefer the bone-in as it does add additional flavor. I believe either will work.

My son in law can't eat fresh onion. Can I substitute onion powder in this recipe and how much. He can tolerate the onion powder. Dietitian comment: Yes you can substitute 2 teaspoons of onion powder--or more if additional flavor desired.
