This week at the Cruze Clan the kiddos started baseball and the week has been a complete whirlwind. Days that I work are incredibly hectic for the Cruze Clan household, as I’m sure it is for many of your homes! I’m always looking for new recipes that I can throw together quickly, especially if I can throw it all in the crockpot and have it ready when we all get home. I am not a particularly gifted cook, I rely on my Pinterest friends to be creative and share their recipes!
We eat A LOT of chicken around our house, the tough thing about crockpot chicken is it always has the same stringy texture. My kids get a bit tired of the same ole’ chicken crockpot meal. (and I bet you do too) I have to say tonight we tried a really great new recipe, and it was amazing! Even the kiddos gobbled it all down. I know you will enjoy this one, its a must for this week’s meal plan!
This recipe is so great, and it’s Whole 30 friendly as well. Start by spraying down your crockpot with nonstick spray or use a liner. Pour all the liquid ingredients right into the pot (tomato paste, tomato sauce, coconut milk, diced tomatoes, broth) mix it up with a spoon, stir in onions, garlic, basil, Italian seasoning, salt and pepper and chicken. (I use frozen breasts).
“Creamy” Crockpot Chicken and Tomato Soup
8 frozen skinless boneless chicken breast
2 tablespoons Italian Seasoning
1 tablespoon dried basil
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 large onion, chopped
2 14 oz. can of coconut milk (full fat), shake before opening can to avoid separation
2 14 oz. can diced tomatoes and juice
2 cups of chicken broth
1 small can of tomato paste
1/2 jar of your favorite tomato sauce
Sea Salt and pepper to taste
I love the crockpot below because it’s large and fits plenty of food for my family.
I used half the ingredients for my family and still had left overs. In fact we were low on chicken breasts and funds this week, so I used only 2 large chicken breasts and we still had plenty. The broth is very hearty and very filling.
Original recipe from River North Paleo Girl. This recipe is a great Paleo friendly/Whole 30/Clean Eating Recipe. Relax moms! Dinner is done!
