(158 calories | *2 WW Freestyle SmartPoints)
Everyone will love this super easy slow cooker Italian chicken.
With just 2 ingredients, it’s perfect when you’re short of time or feeling incredibly lazy but still need to get dinner on the table.
All you need are frozen boneless skinless chicken breasts and a jar of your favorite spaghetti sauce.
I sometimes add a little more garlic powder, splash of red wine and extra teaspoon or two of dried Italian seasoning, or oregano, to jazz things up a bit.
Skinny on Easy Slow Cooker Italian Chicken
This is one of my favorite, super-easy, busy day go-to meals.
But since Rod’s not a huge red sauce fan, I don’t make it as often as I might. He prefers this creamy 3-Ingredient version made with Italian dressing and light cream cheese.
According to my calculations, each serving (not including pasta or zoodles) has about 158 calories, *4 Weight Watchers PointsPlus, *5 Weight Watchers SmartPoints.
Under the Weight Watchers Freestyle Plan, this is reduced to *2 WW Freestyle SmartPoints. Enjoy!
To make this easy slow cooker Italian chicken work for Simply Filling, you could use plain canned tomato sauce (instead of jarred spaghetti sauce) and season it up yourself with garlic, basil, oregano, etc.
