Clean Eating Tortilla Chicken Stew

Clean Eating Tortilla Chicken Stew

(Makes approximately 7 servings)

Ingredients:

20131230_135620.jpg
  • 1 1/2 lb. (680 g) raw chicken breasts
  • 1 (12 oz.) jar of your favorite clean salsa (I use Salsa Authentica from Trader Joe’s)
  • 1 pound (454g) frozen corn, thawed
  • 1 pound (454 g) frozen, mixed bell peppers (also found at Trader Joe’s)
  • 3 organic, corn tortillas, ripped or shredded by hand
  • Olives and yogurt for garnish (optional)

Directions:

  1. Place the chicken in the bottom of the pot, and pour everything else over it. (Cover and store in the fridge overnight if needed)
  2. Place pot/insert in your slow cooker and cook on low for 8-10 hours.
  3. Note that the tortillas will not look very pretty after cooking. But they do add a nice flavor.
  4. When cooking is finished, simply use a wooden spoon to stir everything up and break apart the chicken.
  5. Serve garnished with some sliced, black olives and/or a dab of plain yogurt.

What I added to mine:

  • 1 can of organic black beans
  • 1 small can of green chile (gives it some extra flavor) 
  • Added a small amount of cheese as well instead of olives and garlic


Enjoy!
