An easy and cost efficient dinner option! Tender chicken cooked in your crock pot with red sauce and cheese. Serve it on top of a plate of pasta for the finishing touch.
This is barely a recipe.
It’s one of my “toss some stuff in the crock pot because, I’m too lazy to cook dinner but, don’t want to to spend money on takeout” kinda dishes. You have a few dishes like that too, admit it.
However, it’s darn tasty, so, why not share it with you guys? 🤔
Short Ingredients List:
- Boneless chicken breast
- Marinara/Tomato sauce
- Mozzarella cheese
- Parmesan cheese
Chicken Breasts: This recipe is based on 1.5 lbs of boneless chicken breasts. It should be about 2-3 mediums size breasts. You can use more/less, if desired. Just be sure to adjust the amount of sauce.
Can I use Frozen Chicken Breasts? Yes, just increase your cooking time about 30 minutes.
Mariana/Tomato Sauce: Use your favorite red sauce or spaghetti sauce. Jarred, canned or homemade will all work.
Cheeses: I usually go with the standard mozzarella/Parmesan combo for this recipe. But, feel free to use your own Italian cheese blend.
How to Make:
- First, place your boneless chicken breasts in the crock pot. Pour sauce on top.
- Cook on low for about 4 hours. Then, remove breasts from pot and shred.
- Place back into the pot and stir the shredded chicken with the sauce. Add in cheeses and cook for about another 30 minutes or until they melted.
- Goes perfect with pasta, garlic bread and a salad!
