1tablespoonItalian seasoning or oregano (I used herbs de Provence)
1/2teaspoondried red chile flakes
1/2 teaspoonground black pepper
1/2cuppitted kalamata olives, sliced in half (about 25 olives)
Ideal Slow Cooker Size: 4-quart (If you use a larger slow cooker, check after 4 hours on LOW as it will cook more quickly.)
Season the chicken with salt, pepper and Italian Seasoning and place in the bottom of your slow cooker. Add the remaining ingredients.
Cover, and cook on LOW for 4 to 6 hours, or on HIGH for 3 to 4 hours, or until the chicken is cooked through and fork tender.
Serving size: 1 chicken breast and 1/4 of the olive/tomato mixtureSubstitutions & Variations No chicken breasts? Boneless skinless chicken thighs are a great substitute. They are less prone to overcooking making them a good choice if you want a dish that can hang out longer in the crockpot. Pork chops would be good also.No cherry tomatoes? Chopped fresh roma tomatoes would be good. Canned diced tomatoes or stewed tomatoes would work tooGarnishes? Grated or shaved Parmesan or crumbled feta would be good as would a sprinkling of fresh chopped Italian parsley. We enjoyed it with a drizzle of good balsamic vinegar.Zestier? For a zestier more authentic version add 1-2 tablespoons chopped anchovies or anchovy paste3*SmartPoints (Green plan)1*SmartPoints (Blue plan)1*SmartPoints (Purple plan)5*PointsPlus (Old plan)
