Reviews for Zesty Chicken Marinara
"Solid crock pot recipe, reminiscent of chicken parmasan."
"I made this for my friends & they loved it! I didn't use a slow cooker though. I doubled the recipe & stuffed the chicken breasts with mozzarella cheeze, breaded & baked them. I can't believe how easy it was. I also made the sauce with ground beef, green peppers & onions for spaghetti. that was also fantastic!"
"Delicious and simple"
"My whole fam loved this--I added fresh mushrooms a little more than half way through and used 1/2 can italian tomatoes in place of a fresh one. Would definitely make again--"
"Delicious! This goes together quickly and is very tasty."
"I thought this was pretty good-- it was certainly easy to make-- but what makes this a fabulous recipe in MY book, is that my finicky son loved it, and even happily ate leftovers the next day!"
