I found this amazing recipe on Pintrest, and swiped the photo from Chef-in-training.com. I used a fat free Italian dressing and it still tasted amazing! Now, if you make this recipe and divide it into four equal portions with about 3/4 cup of the quinoa, you are looking at only 218 calories for this part of your meal!
CAFE RIO CHICKEN
found recipe at: Mandy's Recipe Box
- 2 lbs chicken breasts
- 1/2 a small bottle of zesty Italian dressing(I used Kraft Free Italian)
- 1/2 Tbsp. minced garlic
- 1 pkt ranch dressing mix (mixed with 1/2 cup of water)
- 1/2 Tbsp. chili powder
- 1/2 Tbsp. ground cumin
Place all ingredients in a crock pot. Cook on High 5-6 hours OR on Low 8 hours. Shred with fork and serve in salads, burritos, tacos...etc. You can also double or triple this to make extras for freezing. Then simply thaw and reheat for a fast and delicious meal. I served mine with quinoa that had been cooked in half chicken broth, half water, and with fresh fruit salad!
