Slow-Cooker Italian Chicken

My father used to love it when I made this slow-cooker Italian chicken. Since it includes a flavorful tomato sauce, it's especially good served over pasta or rice. —Deanna D'Auria, Banning, California

    This is a great way to prepare chicken. I do add mushrooms. 1cup of red wine. I increase this for 8 servings and then freeze the 6 leftovers. Freezes beautifully. I like to serve with tagliatelle rather than regular spaghetti. Italian salad and garlic parmesan ciabatta.

    Followed the recipe to the letter! Did not change a thing! Amazing juice! Recipe called for removing the chicken and keeping it warmed, I just put it back into the slow cooker (unplugged) after pouring the juices into the saucepan. Will definitely make this again!
