Slow-Cooker Tuscan Chicken
Serves 8


Effortless meals like this one are perfect for serving either guests or family members.

   • 2 pounds boneless, skinless chicken breasts
   • 1 teaspoon dried basil, crumbled
   • 1 teaspoon dried oregano, crumbled
   • 1 14.5-ounce can no-salt-added diced tomatoes, undrained
   • 1 9-ounce package frozen artichoke hearts, thawed
   • 1 cup fat-free, low-sodium chicken broth
   • 1 2.25-ounce can sliced black olives, drained
   • 1/2 teaspoon salt
   • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
   • 1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes (optional)


Discard all visible fat from the chicken. Sprinkle both sides with the basil and oregano. Put the chicken in a 3 1/2 to 4-quart slow cooker.

Stir in the remaining ingredients. Cook, covered, on high for 3 to 4 hours or on low for 7 to 8 hours.

This book has come in so handy since we have had to make lifestyle changes due to high cholesterol. The best thing about this book is that it uses pretty basic ingredients that you can find at any grocery store. Other books I have with low cholesterol recipes had odd ingredients that I just won't keep in stock normally. The recipes offered by the AHA cookbook identify with "real", everyday people making the lifestyle transition much easier than I originally thought. The final outcome: Palate tantalizing dishes appropriate for the whole family.

My husband was put on a low-fat diet so I picked up this cookbook because I liked that it was by the American Heart Association. Every recipe I've made has been delicious! (with the exception of one dessert which was just okay, but low-fat desserts are tough) I will say though, that this cookbook can't be called quick and easy. As someone else mentioned, I have to plan in advance so I can pick up all the ingredients at the grocery store. You also have to make sure to allow plenty of time for cooking the meal. Nothing has been very fast, although it's nothing overly complicated for this basic chef.

All-in-all, I would recommend this cookbook to anyone trying to eat healthier as I think it's an easier transition when the food tastes good, and these recipes definitely do!

I first bought an earlier edition of this book a few years ago when I decided it was time to lose weight. It made cooking for a family of 4 super easy. The meals are delicious and healthy...although there are a few recipes that didnt fit my taste.

At first, you do end up spending more at the grocery store to buy all the new spices & a few new ingredients, but eventually, the cost tapers down. Our weekly grocery bill averaged around $150.00 for a family of 4 adults which included 3 meals a day with snacks. So, I have to say that it is pretty cost efficient as well.

By cooking directly from this book, eating about 1600 claories a day, and walking on the treadmill 20 minutes a day, I went from 286 lbs down to about 215 lbs in 3 months. At that point, I got a gym membership and cut back on my calories just a little bit more (down to 1500). I am now 138 lbs and have been able to keep it off so far.

This book definately gave me a good kickstart to to getting my weight down (and giving my heart a break). I would recommend it in a heartbeat!!!

I bought this book for my father-in-law after he had bypass surgery. I gave him the book and made two recipes out of it for a dinner party with him. My husband liked the dishes so much he wanted us to buy it--so I did! We have been very pleased with the recipes in this book. They are simple, yet flavorful, and span many cuisine types. Bravo, AHA!

Format: Paperback
My only caution to people considering purchasing the book - if you have high blood pressure, you will have to make some adaptations to the recipes. For example, olives and smoked salmon are very high in sodium. I couldn't believe they listed the sodium content for smoked salmon as 82mg when every package of smoked salmon (and not lox as they indicate) has at least 550mg of sodium per 2 slices, and I don't believe washing it in cold water will reduce it to 82 mg. Smoked salmon many times is soaked in brine (lots of salt). With olives you may get away with washing them off, but I am always leary. I have hypertension, and if I eat olives, capers or even roasted peppers or anything with vinegar, I spike. I always wash everything off, and it still doesn't help.
My fear is that a lot of the ingredients in here, I don't use (like creamy sauces or mayonnaise), and I think it might elevate my cholesterol higher. I cut those ingredients out to reduce it to begin with, so adding them back in my create a surge. I found one of the best ways to naturally reduce cholesterol are with plant sterols and plant stanols (in benecol spread or more preferably the benecol chews as they don't have the partially hydrogenated soybean oil the margarine does). Plant stanols work better on menopausal women than plant sterols do (you can get plant sterols in any health food store but the benecol chews can only be purchased on line through amazon or drugs.com).

The 4th Edition of this cookbook is truly wonderful. Each of the recipes I have tried result in very flavorful and delicious dishes. I recommend this book to all cooks, those with cholesterol issues as well as those who are fortunate not to have them.
