Ingredients

  • 1 pound boneless skinless chicken breasts
  • 1 tablespoon herb and garlic seasoning
  • 1/4 cup diced sun dried tomatoes
  • 1/4 cup red bell pepper seeded and diced
  • 1 cup tomato basil pasta sauce

Instructions

  • Add chicken to slow cooker and sprinkle with seasoning
  • Top with diced tomatoes and peppers
  • Carefully spoon sauce over each piece of chicken
  • Cover and cook on low for 6-8 hours or high for 3-4
  • Optional: Top with parmesan or goat cheese if desired and leave cover on for 15 minutes for cheese to melt before serving

Notes

  • 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!
  • I make this is my mini casserole slow cooker but any oval or rectangle slow cooker should work.
  • Let leftovers cool completely then store in air tight containers in fridge up to 3 days
