I was looking for something different to make for dinner, but I wanted something I could throw together in the crock pot because I had a busy day on my hands. After not being too impressed with the ideas I came up with I decided to check out Emily Bites blog. I know a lot of folks enjoy her recipes and I’ve looked but haven’t truly tried many of her dishes.
Looking over the dishes I opted to try out the Slow Cooker Sweet & Tangy Chicken (see recipe here) because I had all the ingredients on hand.
Like typical crock pot meals it was super simple to throw together. Then before I knew it, the main dinner dish was ready. As the directions state, I removed the chicken from the sauce, transferred the sauce to a pot and thickened the sauce up on the stove. My sauce thickened up, perhaps a little too much – but nonetheless it was a great addition to place over the cooked shredded chicken.
I served this over white rice and paired it with fresh steamed green beans and some canned carrots. Definitely a delicious diner!
A ½ cup serving of chicken with sauce is 209 calories or 5 points plus values.
The entire meal as pictured is 10 points plus values.
