While chicken thighs are not as low fat as chicken breasts, they are perfect for the slow cooker, becoming meltingly tender as they cook. Be sure to choose skinless chicken thighs and trim any excess fat before cooking.

  • 1 15-ounce can crushed tomatoes
  • 1/2 cup fat-free, low-sodium chicken broth
  • 1 bay leaf
  • 1/2 tsp fresh thyme
  • 1 sprig rosemary
