Believe it or not, this creamy crockpot recipe is low in fat. Light sour cream and low sodium chicken broth form a decadent sauce that tastes rich without the guilt. The combination of chicken and potatoes, carrots, and onions is delicious any time of the year, but it’s especially good on a cold night.
You can vary the vegetables in this easy recipe to suit your tastes or what you have on hand. Add some chopped red, yellow, or green bell peppers, or stir in some green beans. Use cubed Yukon Gold potatoes in place of the little red potatoes. Use broccoli in place of the carrots, or add some sliced zucchini or yellow summer squash.
You can remove the skin from the chicken before cooking if you’d like. The chicken may not be as moist but the dish will be even lower in fat. If you choose to use skinless chicken, don’t brown it first. Just sprinkle the pieces with salt and pepper and add to the slow cooker after all of the vegetables are in place. This will reduce the fat content of the recipe by about another 30%.
Serve creamy crockpot chicken and vegetables with a fresh green salad with a simple vinaigrette salad dressing. Add a nice glass of white wine for a delicious meal.
