In my recent attempts to take control of my health and start eating things that are tasty and good for me, I’ve been trying out some new recipes. I definitely recommend SparkRecipes.com for healthy, easy meals that everyone can enjoy (and while you’re looking around there, don’t forget to check out SparkPeople.com and use MISSWISABUS as your referrer if you sign up!). This particular recipe was submitted by TABBYKAT75 who seems to be the queen of slow cooker meals. I made it tonight and it is yummy!

1/3 cup dried tomatoes, drained and roughly chopped
1 teaspoon salt, optional
2 Tablespoons chopped fresh basil

Place chicken in a crock pot and add the next 7 ingredients. Cover and cook on low setting for 7-8 hours (or on high setting for 3 1/2 to 4 hours) or until chicken juices run clear and chicken is completely cooked. Place chicken on a large serving platter and sprinkle with basil, Feta cheese and capers. Serve on top of pasta.
