IMG_1723

 Chicken Peppers and Mushrooms

2 to 3 Boneless skinless Chicken Breasts (use 3 if they are small)

2 Large Cloves of Garlic ( minced)

1 Large Onion (sliced)

1 Red and 1 Green Bell Pepper (seeded and sliced into strips)

1 – 14.5oz. Can 100% Chicken Broth ( I used Swanson’s)

1 – 6 oz. jar of Sliced Mushrooms ( I use Green Giant, the only additive they have is citric acid)

1 Teaspoon Salt

1/4 Teaspoon additive free Paprika

Optional – 1 Cup additive free Mozzarella or Parmesan Cheese ( shredded)

Wash and cut up chicken into 1- 2 inch chunks. Then add chicken, garlic, onion and peppers to crockpot. Pour broth and mushrooms (with the liquid) over chicken and vegetables. Season with salt and set crock pot on high for 4 hours or on low to cook for 6- 8 hours. If you choose to use the cheese, then the last 5- 10 minutes of cooking time add the cheese and let it melt over chicken and vegetables, and serve with rice or quinoa. I like a little fresh sliced avocado on the side!

Gearing Up for Thanksgiving

Gluten Free Slow Cooker Cream of Chicken Soup

(also Preservative Free)

3 Pounds Chicken Breast (I buy a 3 lb. bag of frozen chicken breast and just let it thaw in the fridge overnight)

1 stick Salted Butter

3 – 14.5 oz. Can of Swanson 100% natural Chicken Broth (with no MSG)

2 Teaspoons Salt

1/3 Cup Argo Gluten Free Corn Starch

Wash chicken breasts, and place in crockpot whole. Chunk up the butter and place on top of chicken, sprinkle with salt, then pour in the cans of broth. Set crockpot on low for 6-8 hours. In that amount of time, chicken breast will be completely cooked and tender. Turn crock pot up on high heat, and dip out some of the liquid into a small mixing bowl, add corn starch, and whisk together. Add this back to crockpot, leaving the lid off, for 10 – 15 minutes. When liquid starts to thicken turn off heat. Using a potato masher, mash all of the chicken breast and it will shred the chicken into small pieces. Let cool, and dip out about 1 ¾ cups into 5 small plastic storage containers, dividing equally. Label and date, and freeze until ready to use. This will make enough to equal about 5 – 14 oz. cans.

For those of us that cannot eat a can of soup boughten from the grocery store, this recipe will be a staple for the Holidays. It is real food no chemicals, no preservatives, & and it is much better tasting than what you can buy in the store. Hope you enjoy it!
