Crock Pot Tuesday

This week we wanted something with chicken. We have a bunch of chicken breasts from costco and connor likes chicken so it's super simple for him to just eat what we're eating. I always buy pasta sauce when it's on sale because it's an easy ingredient so we had everything on hand for this recipe.

Chicken-Pizza Dish

8 chicken breast halves
2 c. chunky pasta sauce
1 c. your choice of shredded cheese

Spray crock pot with cooking spray and place chicken in pot. Dump sauce on chicken and cook on LOW for 4 hours or HI for 6-8 hours. Spread cheese over chicken and sauce for last 15 minutes of cook time.

My review: This was great. We just served it with a simple green salad and garlic bread, but it could easily be served over pasta so maybe we'll try that next time. I cooked it on low for 4 hours because it's really easy to overcook/scorch in the crockpot. I was home all day today so I could start the crock pot at noon without a problem. I didn't add anything else to the crockpot but the three ingredients, but you can add other spices like oregano, thyme, basil, etc. as desired but we just used salt and pepper and it was enough. I think adding a cup of red wine would add something too. We'll def do this one again.
