Crock Pot Chicken Marinara Sauce

Crock Pot Chicken Marinara Sauce from 101 Cooking For Two
Easy and tasty for Italian night. Just dump the ingredients in the slow cooker and come back to eat.

I started with my wife's marinara. It bursts with sweet tomato taste due to the paste that is used. Add some skinless boneless chicken breast and you have a healthy low fat Italian family feast.

 A strong 4.

Notes: I put in a option for some crushed red pepper. I don't do it this time but it would add that touch of heat. The chicken can be left whole, cut into serving sizes or about 1 hour before the end, removed and shredded and placed back if you wish.


Rinse, dry and trim 3 skinless boneless chicken breast (1 1/2 to 2 pounds). If you want, cut into serving size pieces.
Dice a medium onion.
To a medium to larger crock pot (this is 3.5 quart) add 3 - 6 oz cans of tomato paste and an equal amount of water. 1 - 14 oz can of diced tomatoes. 4 t dry basal, 1 t salt, 1/2 t pepper. Crush 3 cloves of garlic and the onion. Add 1/4 t crushed red pepper if you want a little heat.  Mix well.
Add chicken and push down to cover.

Cook on low for 6 hours. If you like your chicken shredded, remove the breasts about 1 hour before the end, shred and place back in for the last hour.

I like the idea of shredding the chicken since I would want to put this with pasta and it just mixes better that way.
