If I don’t say so myself, this is a top-notch slow cooker chicken stew.
Chicken stews aren’t new to this house, but when Mr. Mike gave this Mexican version a five star review, I knew it would make the dinner menu again in the future.
This roundup tops my list of chicken dishes, as they practically guarantee a flavorful and succulent bite will land on your plate.
On the off chance that this collection of juicy chicken recipes isn’t quite what you’re looking for, try one of these I’ve pinned from fellow healthy food bloggers. I’ll bet you find an impressive dish amongst this group!
Enjoy, and have a wonderful Labor Day weekend to those of you celebrating the holiday!

Back in the day, I would feed my family frozen chicken nuggets in the belief that I was serving them a healthy meal. After all, we weren’t eating out at the local fast food joint, so those chicken nuggets had to be a healthier option, right?
Those days are long past, but every day I can picture their darling faces chowing down at the kitchen counter.
I’ll bet you’re thinking to yourself, “Why is she posting a turkey recipe in June?”
Because turkey breast tenderloins were on sale, and chard is in season. It’s as simple as that.
It was a breeze to keep this meal low calorie since turkey breast is a lean source of protein, and chard has virtually no calories to speak of.
Did you know that according to WebMD (I’m a fan of this site for quick health advice) chard provides more than 300 percent of your vitamin K needs for the day?
This sounds like a good reason to eat it while it’s fresh from the garden to me.
And this chard makes a perfect side dish for my cost friendly turkey breast tenderloins. We spread them with a mixture of spicy Dijon mustard and lemon, then dredged them in an herby flour mixture before they were roasted in the oven.
Did I tell you that I’m training to run a 5K at our local winery for a children’s charity with daughter Rimmy? I decided on my 54th birthday in May that I needed a new fitness goal. I’m not a runner, so this is a stretch for me.
My turkey and chard recipe came in under 300 calories, making it a good training meal with lots of lean protein and veggies. Now I just need to get this running thing down. Wish me luck!
Serving Size: 2
Shake It Up! This recipe works equally well for chicken breasts or pork tenderloin. Kale or spinach could easily replace the chard.

The versatility of Mexican spices – chiles, cumin, garlic, cayenne, and oregano work with almost any vegetable or meat you pair them with.
Meals after a long work day have to be an easy affair. Anything too fancy, with too many ingredients immediately puts me in a funk. I want some of the evening left to play.
