You are only 5 ingredients away from a meal that tastes way to gourmet to come from your slow cooker, but it does! Easy to make and sure to make the whole family happy!
I used two large boneless skinless chicken breasts but cut in half to make 4 servings. You could also use 4 smaller chicken breasts.
I used jarred sun dried tomatoes in oil but dried should work just as well since they will be cooking all day in the sauce
I recommend using a high-quality no sugar added tomato basil sauce for best results
Layer the chicken in the bottom of the slow cooker and top with seasoning
Add the chopped tomatoes and peppers
Carefully add a layer of sauce over the top so that everything stays assembled
To keep the sauce from burning while cooking all day, be sure to wipe any excess from the edges of the slow cooker
You could also substitute jarred roasted red pepper for fresh bell pepper
I served this over Banza pasta but use any pasta, rice, or veggie you love!
