Chicken Cacciatore

This recipe could be easily done in the crock pot and left to cook all day. I simmered it stove top for about 2 1/2 hours and it turned out good as well. The traditional form of Chicken Cacciatore is served over rice. I put it over broccoli slaw that was sauteed in some of the Cacciatore sauce. You could eat it by itself as well.
Chicken Cacciatore- 3 blocks
3 chicken breasts- (shred into 3 block portion of protein)
1 can Italian stewed tomatoes- (negligible on all markers)
1 green bell pepper sliced- (1/2 block carb)
1 red bell pepper- (1/2 block carb)
2 cups broccoli slaw sauteed with sauce from Cacciatore- (1 block carb)
Combine first 4 ingredients and simmer for 2-3 hours on low.
Mixed green salad with kidney beans, nuts and olive oil vinaigrette-(1 block carb/ 3 blocks fat)

Wow, that looks really easy and delicious. Thank you! I think I will break out the crock pot this week and give it a try.

OK Skip I, too, am a cheater. Today I was on my normal morning "Zone" routine until my Pastry Chef at our bakery made Chocolate Chip Pound Cake to sample. It tasted amazing, but I think I am still buzzed from the sugar high/insulin spike! (I always knew I was a cheap date) What goes up, must come down...
I just wanted to let you know you are not alone out there!!!!

I'll check in later as I am dozing off at work right now.

katiegirlblue-
You can buy prepackaged broccoli slaw at most grocery stores. It is generally in the salad section. It is broccoli stalks and carrots that have been shredded into a "slaw". Really good stuff and you can use it for a variety of recipes.. Great zone staple!
