Thursday, May 7, 2009

I discovered this tasty dish in Fix-It and Forget-It Lightly: Healthy, Low-Fat Recipes for Your Slow Cooker. While there is a few more steps on the front end than I would prefer for slow cooker meals, it's well worth the preparation effort.

Per Serving (8): 410 calories; 9g total fat (0 trans); 24g total carbohydrate (1g fiber, 4g sugar); 56g protein.



  • 3 lbs chicken tenders

  • 15 oz. bottle fat-free Italian salad dressing

  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil

  • 2 1/2 cups flour

  • 1/2 teaspoon salt

  • 1/2 teaspoon Lawry's Seasoned Salt


  1. Rinse chicken. Pat dry.

  2. Cut chicken tenders into 1 inch square pieces and place them in a 9 x 13 pan.

  3. Pour Italian dressing over meat and marinate for at least 3 hours.

  4. place flour and seasonings in study plastic bag. Add 1/3 of the cubed chicken. Toss until all pieces are well coated.

  5. Remove chicken (reserve flour mixture in plastic bag). Brown in vegetable oil in skillet. Remove chicken with slotted spoon. Place in slow cooker.

  6. Repeat steps 4 and 5 with remaining chicken.

  7. Cover. Cook on low for 2-3 hours.
