Slow Cooker Chicken Cacciatore

The Fitnessista shared a great slow cooker recipe not too long ago. San Marzano tomatoes, basil, red pepper- yum! And in the slow cooker, even better!

1 large can of crushed San Marzano tomatoes (28oz)
1 pack of chicken breasts (3 medium), washed, pat dry, and seasoned with salt and pepper
1 red bell pepper, diced
2 cloves of garlic, minced
1/2 large sweet onion, minced
1 C fresh basil
1 t dried oregano
splash of balsamic
salt (about 1 1/2 t) and pepper (1/2 t)
2 T capers (I did not include these, I'm not a huge fan of capers)

Put everything in the slow cooker, cook on high for 4-6 hours (or low, 6-8 hours)

Easy peasy! I served this with brown rice, it would also be great with pasta.
