This is another low carb dish I did on Saturday and I was very pleased with the outcome. Just wish I had taken pictures!! Found something similar on internet.

This was very tasty and filling and I ended up making about 3 meals out of it, for this single person.

Enjoy

Serves:

up to 4

Method:

Slow Cooker Crock Pot

Ingredients

4
chicken breast halves, skinless and boneless
1 lb
frozen shredded spinach
1/2 jar(s)
marinara sauce, thick
1 c
water (to make the marinara "pourable")

SEASON TO TASTE WITH:

salt and pepper
granulated garlic
minced onion
italian spices
tones curry powder

OPTIONAL:

place small slices of swiss cheese on top before serving

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Put seasonings on raw chicken breasts (both sides) and place in the bottom of the slow cooker
2
Mix the water and Marinara together and pour around the chicken, trying not to wash off the seasonings on the chicken.
3
fill the rest of the crock pot with the frozen spinach and put seasonings on the spinach, too
4
Turn to high and cook for 3 or 4 hours -- until the chicken falls apart and you can stir everything together and serve in bowls.
5
Could also cook on low for up to 8 hours
6
I accidentally got a little too much curry in but ended up liking the little bit of zip that added to the flavor.
7
For one of the meals I cut some sliced swiss cheese in strips and placed on top of the hot food. They got a little melty and really added to the flavor.
