Crockpot chicken

I want to throw some boneless chicken breast in the crockpot, What liquid should I put in there with them? I was thinking crushed tomatoes but that is very carby.
Thanks,
Maria

WOE: Trying to find the one that works
I have put them in with chicken broth and garlic powder. They were good but a bit bland.

I once tried Bruce's BBQ chicken and it came out pretty good... here is the recipe and another for Adobe chicken that sounds yummy!

Bruce’s BBQ sauce w/chicken

16 ounces Contadina tomato sauce, 22 carbs
3 packets splenda (or more to taste)
2 tablespoons vinegar
1 tablespoon chili powder
1 tablespoon paprika
1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper (I omit the cayenne pepper)
2 teaspoons liquid smoke flavoring
1 tablespoon syrup, sugar free maple, 1 carb
1/4 cup onion, minced

mix, pour over chicken and let it cook all day, or until tender on low. I would think you could do this on high also for less time obviously




Chicken Adobo

5-6 chicken breasts
worshershire sauce
red wine vinegar
soy sauce

Pour equal parts of sauces over chicken. Cook on Low overnight
FANTASTIC!

What can you use in place of sherry? I don't have any sherry or wine in the house.

I just put this in my own MasterCook, and came up with:

Per Serving: 358 Calories; 21g Fat (56.9% calories from fat); 32g Protein; 5g Carbohydrate; 0g Dietary Fiber; 131mg Cholesterol; 886mg Sodium.

Then I took off the cream cheese, and came up with:

Per Serving: 160 Calories; 1g Fat (9.7% calories from fat); 27g Protein; 3g Carbohydrate; 0g Dietary Fiber; 68mg Cholesterol; 718mg Sodium.

Maybe cream cheese wasn't one of the original ingredients?

Pami, you're right, my counts are without the cream cheese. I didn't realize that when I posted the recipe. I just checked my Mastercook recipe, and I had taken out the cream cheese in the counts, as I often make this just plain.

A VERY easy way to crockpot FROZEN chicken breasts is this:

Layer FROZEN chicken breasts. Put Italian dressing between each layer. Cook on LOW for 10 hours. YUMMY !!! and EASY !!!

NOTE: Sometimes I want a "sweet/spicey" taste so I will add a little artificial sweetner to the Italian dressing before pouring it over the chicken breasts.
