Serve this flavorful dish with crusty whole grain bread or over cooked orzo or rice to soak up the yummy sauce laced with creamy Feta. A slow cooker recipe that’s simple enough for a weeknight yet suitable for company.
8-4 oz (125 g) skinless, boneless chicken breasts or 12 skinless, bone-in chicken thighs
4 cloves garlic, slivered
2 sweet peppers (red, yellow and/or orange), cut into strips
1 onion, halved and thinly sliced
1 can (28 oz/796 mL) diced tomatoes
2 tbsp (25 mL) all-purpose flour
1 tbsp (15 mL) balsamic or red wine vinegar
2 tsp (10 mL) dried Italian herb seasoning
1 cup (250 mL) frozen peas, thawed
1 1/3 cup (325 mL) crumbled lower fat Feta cheese or 1 cup (250 mL) crumbled regular Feta cheese
2 tbsp (25 mL) chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley (optional)
In a 6-1/2 quart (6.5 L) slow cooker, arrange chicken breasts or thighs in the bottom. Top with garlic, peppers and onion. Drain 1/2 cup (125 mL) of juice from the tomatoes and reserve for another use.
Stir flour, balsamic vinegar and Italian seasoning into tomatoes and pour over the chicken and vegetables. (Make ahead: cover with lid and refrigerate overnight.)
Cover with lid and cook on Low for 6 to 8 hours or on High for 4 to 6 hours.
Turn off slow cooker. Stir in peas and top with Canadian Feta cheese. Cover with lid and let stand for 5 minutes or until cheese is softened and peas are heated. Sprinkle with parsley (if using).
