 This is an easy and delicious chicken dish that takes very little prep!

Tender chicken cooked in a zesty tomato sauce loaded with onions, garlic and veggies!  Perfect served over your favorite pasta!

Chicken thighs will give you the most tender results.  If using chicken breasts, be sure to keep an eye on them!  Slow Cookers can vary greatly so while you want the chicken tender and cooked through you don’t want to overcook it as it will dry out.  If you happen to have bone in chicken, that works beautifully in this recipe as well!  You can certainly add extra veggies or whatever veggies you have on hand to this recipe.  I’ve added zucchini, peppers and mushrooms all with great results.
