Marinara Chicken

Here is an extremely easy chicken dish that you can make in the crockpot.  I first heard about this from HickChickWA, and the dish originally comes from A Year of Slow Cooking.  This chicken will only taste as good as the marinara sauce you use, so use a good one.  I used Newman's Own Organic.  Homemade would be even better.  I also used frozen chicken breasts, and stirred in some fresh basil before serving.  We had this with thin, whole wheat spaghetti noodles.

Marinara Chicken

3-4 frozen boneless, skinless chicken breasts
1 jar (24-26 oz) marinara sauce
fresh basil, optional
shredded cheese, optional (mozz or parm)

Place frozen chicken into crockpot and top with marinara sauce.  Cook on LOW for about 8 hours, or on HIGH for 4 hours.  Turn off the heat, and stir in basil.  Serve over hot cooked pasta.  Garnish with shredded cheese.  Serves 3-4.
