Slow Cooker Shredded Chicken and Tomatoes

I love me some crock pot meals, because they are just so easy. And ready when you feel like eating. This one took about 15 minutes to put together – can’t beat that!

You’ll need:

2-14.5ounce or 1-28ounce can diced tomatoes
2 tablespoons tomato paste
2 bell peppers, diced
1 medium onion, diced
5 garlic cloves, minced
2 teaspoons italian seasoning
salt, pepper, red pepper flakes to taste
2 large, boneless skinless chicken breasts

Directions:

1. Place all ingredients into crock pot except for chicken. Mix to combine.

2. Lay the chicken breasts on top of tomato mixture. Cook on high for 4 hours or low for 8.

3. About 30-45 minute before you are ready to eat, shred the chicken using two forks and mix it into the sauce. Let it continue to cook, allowing the sauce to thicken a bit. If you like a thicker sauce, add a little extra tomato paste at this point.

4. Voila! This would be great on pasta of course, but if you’re eating pale, just put it over your favorite veggies or eat it on it’s own. Easy and delicious!
