This is a great healthy recipe that can be made in the slow cooker and can be served on whole wheat pasta.  We served it on spaghetti squash for added extra healthiness.
  • 12 oz chicken breast
  • 1 cup chopped mixed colored peppers
  • 2 tbsp tomato paste
  • 1/2 tsp red pepper flakes
  • 14 oz can Italian diced tomatoes
  • 2 cups sliced mushrooms
  • 1 tsp dried oregano
  • 2 tsp minced garlic
  • 1 tsp dried rosemary
  • 1 large spaghetti squash
 Cut the chicken breast into small bite size cubes.  Preheat a medium skillet on medium heat with a tbsp of olive oil.  Add chicken and season with salt and pepper.  Brown 2 minutes on each side.  Put into the slow cooker.  Add the rest of the ingredients (except squash) and stir well.  Cover and cook on low for 6 hours.  To cook the squash, poke a few holes in the squash with a sharp knife, put it on a paper towel in the microwave and cook for 6-10 minutes depending on the size.  Cut in half, clean out seeds and scrape out with a fork to make strands.  Serves 6

    1. This sounds great. I have a chicken cacciatore with squash on my plan for next week! I guess it's just that time of year. YUM
