Lebanese Crock Pot Chicken- 4 points

I had ever so many wonderful things to tell you tonight, but - alas, the best laid plans of mice and men often go astray. I have had horrendous vertigo on and off all day, so my family has made me promise to go to be on time tonight. So, I will give you a quick and easy crock pot recipe that I made one day this past week. I love the combination of sweet and spicy in this recipe, and that little hit of smoke added by the paprika. Best of all was walking into my house after a long day at work and smelling exotic spices calling me to put my feet up, relax, and enjoy!

Lebanese Crock Pot Chicken
1 lb chicken breast, cut into strips
2/3 cup fat free yogurt, plain
2 cans diced tomatoes, 1 drained - 1 with juice
1 tsp paprika
1 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp black pepper
3 cloves garlic, minced
1/4 tsp cayenne pepper

1. Place chicken in crock pot. In a small bowl, combine the remaining ingredients.
2. Pour yogurt mixture over chicken.
3. Cook on low heat 6 - 8 hours.
4. Yields 4, 4 point servings


  1. What an easy, but difeerent way to prepare chicken! A bowl of rice (brown or white) would nicely pair with this dish, right? Thank you for stopping by my blog! Me following now :)

  4. Thank you, everyone! Mateja, it would definitly go well with rice or with pasta - something to soak up the wonderful sauce.
