Ever since Hamilton arrived the other day I have been dreaming up crock-pot deliciousness! Who is Hamilton? Oh, that is my new crockpot. Yes, I have an old reliable crockpot, but there is something about my new programmable, stainless steel 6 qt crockpot that I just love! I am such a kitchen geek!
Anyway, we have crockpotted 2 days in a row at my house, and we may go for 3 tomorrow. There is nothing like the ease of throwing all the food in it in the morning and knowing it will cook and be waiting for you when you are ready! No fuss, no mess…just food!
Spur of the moment, I went around and gathered ingredients for tonight’s supper. I am trying to use up some of my stockpile foods instead of buying too much this week. I have plenty of canned goods, and just bought chicken this last week at Winn Dixie when it was BOGO. Hmmm….what if….? That is how most of my recipes start. I have no clue how it will turn out, just a hunch that if it does turn out, it will be delicious. It doesn’t hurt to use the kids as Guinea pigs.
Here is my what if dinner, and by the way it is hearty, filling, and just down right good! As my kids would say, “You could serve this at a restaurant.”
Tomato Artichoke Chicken
- 2-4 Boneless Skinless Chicken Breasts (Depending on size)
- 1 14oz can Diced Tomatoes with Garlic and Onion
- 1 Can Artichokes in brine (not marinated) drained
- Some Roasted Red Peppers (optional)
- 1 tsp minced garlic
Place chicken breasts in crockpot and top with tomatoes, drained artichokes, roasted red peppers, basil, oregano, and garlic.
Cook on High for 4 hours or low for 7-8 hours.
Serve over pasta or risotto.
Serves 4-6 depending on how many chicken breasts.
This week was another stockpile week for me. Here is the average cost breakdown for you.
- Chicken Breast $2.19/lb (about 1.5 lb)
- Can of Diced Tomatoes $1 or less
- Can of Artichokes $1.50
- Pasta (I don’t pay more than $0.25 box after sales and coupons)
Divided by 4
$1.51 Per Person! That is my kind of crockpot meal!
