This is one of the best recipes I found as part of the Crock Pot Project.  The chicken was really tender! I found the recipe on fearlesshomemaker and my revisions are included below.


3-4 skinless, boneless chicken breasts
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper (optional)
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 yellow bell pepper, diced
1 orange bell pepper, diced
1 onion, diced
1 TBS minced garlic
1 (28 ounce) jar pasta sauce (Your favorite brand or look for unsweetened Paleo approved version. I like Rao’s marinara.)
1 bay leaf

*Plus pasta, spiralized veggie or greens to serve it over.


  • Heat 1 tablespoon olive oil in a skillet over medium heat, add the peppers, onions and garlic to the pan and saute for about 5 minutes until the vegetables have softened slightly.
  • Add seasonings (salt, pepper, crushed red pepper and bay leaf) and tomato sauce and stir.
  • Place chicken in bottom of crock pot and pour the sauce mixture over the top.
  • Put slow cooker on low for 4-6 hours.
  • Remove bay leaf (if you can find it)
  • Serve over wilted greens or pasta.
