Even on busy days, I can start this chicken in a slow cooker and still get to work on time. When I come home, I add spinach salad and crescent rolls. —Heidi Rudolph, Oregon, Illinois

Ingredients

  • 2 medium sweet potatoes (about 1-1/4 pounds), peeled and cut into 1/2-inch pieces
  • 1 medium sweet red pepper, coarsely chopped
  • 1-1/2 pounds boneless skinless chicken breasts
  • 1 can (14-1/2 ounces) stewed tomatoes, undrained
  • 1/2 cup peach or mango salsa
  • 1/4 cup golden raisins
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • COUSCOUS:
  • 1 cup water
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup uncooked whole wheat couscous

Directions

In a 4-qt. slow cooker, layer sweet potatoes, red pepper and chicken breasts. In a small bowl, mix tomatoes, salsa, raisins and seasonings; pour over chicken. Cook, covered, on low 3-4 hours or until sweet potatoes and chicken are tender.
About 10 minutes before serving, prepare couscous. In a small saucepan, bring water and salt to a boil. Stir in couscous. Remove from heat; let stand, covered, 5 minutes or until water is absorbed. Fluff with a fork.
Remove chicken from slow cooker; coarsely shred with two forks. Return chicken to slow cooker, stirring gently to combine. Serve with couscous.
Freeze option: Place cooled chicken mixture in freezer containers. To use, partially thaw in refrigerator overnight. Microwave, covered, on high in a microwave-safe dish until heated through, stirring gently and adding a little broth or water if necessary. Yield: 6 servings.
