Submitted by: TAZANGEL36

Introduction

Country Italian dish, the sauce can be made as thick or as thin as you like. Delicious, more veggies can be added if you wish. This is a great crockpot dish to serve for dinner and leftovers; dinner parties; large gatherings. Can also be made ahead of time and reheated, or frozen.

Ingredients

    Celery, raw, 2 cup, diced
    Baby Carrots, raw, 50 medium carrots or one small bag
    Canned Tomatoes, 1 can
    Garlic powder, 3 tbsp
    Oregano, ground, .5 tbsp
    Basil, .5 tbsp
    Chicken Breast, no skin, 3 breast, bone and skin removed
    Red Wine, 2 fl oz
    Swanson Chicken Broth 99% Fat Free, .5 cup
    Tomato Sauce, 1 cup
    Pasta, cooked, 8 oz

Directions

Toss tomatoes, chicken breasts (I like the thin-cut breasts), baby carrots, celery, wine (my favorite is Riunite Lambrusco, the slight sweetness balances the acidity and bitterness of the garlic and tomatoes), chicken stock, and seasonings into crockpot. Cook on high for approximately 2 hours, stirring occasionally, or until chicken is cooked through. Remove chicken from crockpot and set aside.

In separate pan, boil water for noodles (I like bow-tie for this dish) and cook to your desired consistency. While noodles cook, add tomato sauce and paste to crockpot, stirring to integrate, and shred or finely chop chicken breasts.

For a thicker sauce, add a ladle or two of pasta cooking water to crockpot before draining noodles. Add drained noodles and chicken back to crockpot, stir to evenly coat noodles, and let cook on high just long enough to thicken sauce and get everything thoroughly heated.

Serve hot and enjoy! This recipe, with amounts indicated, serves my family of 4 for dinner, and provides 2 days of lunches for myself and spouse at reasonable portions.
