Ready or not Summer is winding down and Fall is just around the corner!
I don’t know about you but when I think of fall I think of Back to school, Football, Apples, Festivals, tailgating, get togethers and really good FOOD! And as much as I like good food – I also love CLEAN & Healthy foods and anytime I can take an old favorite with a healthy twist I AM IN!
After a summer full of grilling I have dusted off my crockpot and I am ready for some new soups and easy meals that get tossed together in the morning and are ready to eat come dinner time!
I see this becoming a staple in our house – its easy to make – easy to make A LOT of – and its so versatile!
WHAT YOU NEED:
- 1 pound chicken
- 1 cup plain greek yogurt
- 1/4 cup hot sauce (more or less depending on your preference)
- 1 TBS minced garlic
- 1 sliced onion (optional)
- 1/4 shredded cheddar cheese (optional)
- Banana Peppers (optional)
WHAT YOU NEED TO DO:
Toss all items into the crockpot – cook on low 6-7 hours and shred when complete! And yes – that’s IT!
SOME SERVING IDEAS INCLUDE:
- On top of sliced tomatoes —>
- As a wrap – I loved it with some sliced banana peppers and spinach on a gluten free tortilla
- As a salad – in a mix of romaine and spinach with some cherry tomatoes. The chicken is so juicy – no dressing needed in my opinion
- Pizza topping – Again – I am digging the combo with banana peppers but think some additional hot sauce would be good and cheese so its more “like pizza”
- Open faced sandwich – easy enough!
- Over pasta – this was my munchkins preference
- By itself
Side note – the picture with the sliced tomatoes was a time when I had more than 2 pound of chicken and not quite 2 cups of yogurt. It was more of a shredded chicken than a ‘DIP’ but if you use the yogurt identified above for the amount of chicken you have it will be creamier.
And to answer the thought I am sure you have —- No – you cannot taste the yogurt aspect at all!!!
