Looking for your next quick bodybuilding dinner recipe? Our Healthy Slow Cooker Chicken Stew recipe is here to help! This high protein chicken meal prep is packed with great macros, easy to make, and absolutely delicious.
You’re going to start this recipe by taking out your slow cooker. If you don’t have a slow cooker, here’s a link the one we’ve been using for over a decade and recommend.
Take out 4 pounds of chicken breast, trim the fat off of them, and cut them into 1” pieces. Keep in mind that cutting them bigger or smaller will likely change your cooking time.
Add in 1 chopped up 1 red onion, 1 can of 98% fat free cream of mushroom, 1/2 teaspoon of lemon pepper, 1 1/2 teaspoons of minced garlic, 1 teaspoon of Italian seasoning, 6 ounces of mushrooms (optionally chopped), 2 large chopped up washed sweet potatoes, 2 large chopped up washed russet potatoes, 12 ounces of chopped carrots, 2 cups of water, and 1 packet of an onion gravy mix.
I like to keep the skin on my potatoes. Why? It helps add even more fiber to this recipe!
You should now mix all of your healthy slow cooker chicken stew ingredients together. If there doesn’t appear to be enough liquid to submerge everything, add a bit more water until submerged.
Put your cover on and turn your slow cooker on high heat for 4-5 hours.
Diet tip? Lower the sodium in the recipe by using a reduced sodium onion gravy mix!
