The recipe “CHICKEN & VEGGIE SLOW COOKER” is healthy, easy to make, and inexpensive. This is also the perfect meal to make in large batches and then freeze as single servings you can thaw for days and days!
- 2 1/2-3 lbs boneless skinless chicken thighs and breasts
- 2 c. frozen peas
- 1 sweet potato, cubed
- 1 large or 2 medium apples, cored and cubed (no seeds!!)
- 2 carrots, sliced
- 1 can of kidney beans, drained and rinsed
- 2 c. frozen green beans
- 2 tbsp olive oil
- Place meat in the crockpot and add water so that it just covers the chicken. Then, add potatoes, carrots, kidney beans, green beans, and apples.
- Cook on low for 8-9 hours, when it is about finished, add the frozen peas and cook for another 30 minutes.
- When finished, drain off excess liquid, add olive oil, and stir to mash (or place in a food processor).
- When cooled, scoop daily servings into individual Ziploc bags and freeze. Each night, remove one bag from the freezer and place it in the fridge to defrost overnight.
