Joanie's Chicken and veggie marinara

Submitted by: MOSTLYH2O

Introduction

I used zucchini , broccoli and a few shelled fava beans for this but only because that's what I had on hand; you could really use anything for the veg, or none at all.

Ingredients

    3 pounds chicken breast, raw
    2 jars marinara sauce (I used Trader Joe's tomato basil marinara)
    1 jar red pepper eggplant spread (if you can't find this you can just use chopped red bell peppers)
    1 small can tomato paste
    raw zucchini, cut into 1/2" chunks
    raw broccoli, cut into small florets
    5 cloves of garlic, minced (or more!)
    1 Tbsp olive oil
    2 Tbsp sugar (this sounds like a lot, but this makes a HUGE amount)
    Salt and pepper to taste

Directions

Just throw everything into the pot together and stir up a bit. Then cook in a 350-degree oven for two or more hours.

I then shredded up the chicken and served it over polenta, but you could put it over rice or pasta if you want.

Serving Size: Makes 12 2-cup servings.
