Recipe: Crock Pot Pasta Sauce Chicken

This week's Crock Pot recipe:

3 frozen boneless skinless chicken breasts
1 jar of pasta sauce
2 carrots, diced

1.  Place chicken breasts in Crock Pot.

2.  Dump pasta sauce on top of chicken.

3.  Layer carrots on top of pasta sauce.

4.  Set Crock Pot on low for 8 hours.

Notes: I had read about this recipe (sans carrots) on the CP Lovers group on Rav (although I think it actually called for four breasts, but my package had three in it).  I had some carrots in my fridge that I'm trying to use up, so I decided that putting some in on top of the sauce would be great.  I just kept dicing until there was a whole layer on top of the sauce, and that ended up being two carrots.  I figured that being in there for eight hours would properly cook the carrots, and I was right.

The chicken was fork tender when it was done, and I just basically shredded it up and stirred it up with the sauce and carrots.  I served this over long grain rice.  Excellent, easy, and plenty of leftovers!

  1. I'm going to have to look for that group! Crock pots are some of the cooking I can still do (at least until we move to new accessible digs. then I can go back and cook like I used to!!)

    How are the ebay sales going? (BTW the amazon listings often also contain the back copy from the book titled 'from the publisher' or something like that. Cutting and pasting saves me loads of time)
