"So easy and so good. I use frozen chicken breasts and cook on high for 4 hours in the slow cooker. The sauce is not thick, it is a bit runny, but very tasty. Add tomato paste if you want it thicker. Serve on top of pasta and sprinkle with Parmesan cheese. I use one can of crushed tomatoes and one can of diced tomatoes."

skinless, boneless chicken breast halves, or more to taste
salt and ground black pepper to taste
onion, thinly sliced
2 (14.5 ounce) cans
I used 4 very large chicken breasts - 10 to 11 oz each, and they started frozen. 4 hours at high left them just a tad dry so I think if you had more normal sized chicken and it was only refrigerator cold 4 hours would be too long, I'd start checking for doneness at about 2 1/2 hours, or cook on low if you aren't going to be available to check. I was only cooking for two so I ladled some of the juice/onion mixture into a saucepan and added enough penne for two and let it simmer until the pasta was done and shredded one of the breasts and added it to the pasta - was a yummy supper for two and I have enough leftovers to do that again, plus cooked chicken for other uses.
Didn't love this. I think it was too much tomato for me. I did use one can of diced and one can of crushed. Served over spaghetti.
Tried this yesterday. Very good. I had 4 med boneless, skinless chicken breasts already marinated overnight in frig. Used 1/2 cup apple cider vinegar and 3 teas. crushed garlic. I used 2 cans, undrained crushed tomatoes w/basil, oregano and thyme. Added 1/2 teas fresh finely chopped rosemary. 1 large sweet onion sliced. 2 hrs at low and 2 hrs at high. Came out extremely tender and tasty. Served in large bowl w/Grands biscuits. Very easy.
I had to sub thighs for the breasts and whole tomatoes for the crushed, just because that's what I had on hand. It was delicious! My hubby loved it and raved about how good it was.
Cooked this for dinner tonight. I used diced tomatoes, flavored with rosemary and oregano instead of crushed tomatoes. I also used 1 teaspoon of thyme by mistake. I served it over linguine noodles with a wedge salad. My husband loved it! It was simple to make. I will make this again for sure.
My picky family loved this, I will absolutely make it again. Served it over rice, might add a bit of sugar next time to cut the acid a bit.
I MADE IT TODAY. WE JUST FINISHED SUPER AND HUSBAND SAID IT WAS A KEEPER. I LIKE THE TASTE. I SERVED IT ON GLUTIN FREE NOODLES. MADE A SIDE OF FRIED GREEN BEANS WITH A LITTLE BACON AND OLIVE OIL. YUM!
I made this last night for dinner and my not-at-all-picky husband said it was "edible" but "not worth trying again."
The only tweak I did was to cook on low, I was hoping it would not be done for a while since I had other things going on last night, but it was done in 4 hours.
Definitely won't be trying this one again.
