Island Chicken & Veggies {Crock pot, clean eating}

Sometimes when its warm outside, you just don't always feel like cooking, but that can sometimes lead to poor nutritional choices. Letting the crock pot cook dinner for you, can not only free up some cooking time, but, healthy meals can be made that way too!

Island Chicken & Veggies in the Slow Cooker

1) Cut up whatever veggies you have in the fridge ready to be used.. peppers, onions, carrots, potatoes and place them in the bottom of the slow cooker.

2) arrange raw chicken breast pieces over the cut veggies

3) add about 2 Tbsp of soy sauce (try liquid aminos if you can) an then 1 C. low sodium chicken broth, and 2C of water, along with 1 can of pineapple with the juice, or a half pineapple cut up with some juice. 

4) Cover and cook on high for about 3-4 hours. 

This meal can pair very well with Brown Rice if you are looking to get a complex carb in with your meal!
