Prep time: 15 minutes

Cook time: 4 hours


1 lb. chicken breasts (frozen or thawed)

1 jar marinara sauce or 2 cups of homemade sauce (I recommend the Basil and Garlic sauce from Aldis grocery store)

1 4 oz. can of tomato paste

1 Tbsp. of dried oregano

¼ cup fresh basil (or 1 Tbsp dried)

½ cup chicken broth (or 1 cup if you like your marinara sauce runnier)


1. Put the chicken in your crock pot, salt and pepper it well

2. Literally just put all of the remaining ingredients into a crock pot with the chicken, put the lid on, and turn the heat setting on high for 4 hours.

3. After 4 hours, shred the chicken (I use a fork) and let it set on low heat for 30 minutes (this will let the chicken soak up the flavor really nicely).

4. Serve with your favorite pasta, zoodle, or rice. I recommend
