  • 6 boneless chicken thighs or breasts
  • 3 small onions (2-3″ diameter) sliced into strips (I like to make them big so picky eaters can remove them)
  • Two handfuls of cherry tomatoes whole
  • 3 bell peppers, cored and sliced into strips
  • 16 oz jar of tomato sauce ( I suggest our Roasted Tomato Sauce!)
  • 3 basil leaves
  • 1 tsp red pepper flakes
  • Salt & Pepper to taste
  • Optional: Prepared pasta or rice


  1. Toss everything in a slow cooker and cook for 8 hours on low.
  2. Use a fork to tear the chicken, and serve alone, or over-prepared pasta or rice.
