Zesty Chicken Marinara Recipe

A friend served this wonderful Italian dish before a church social, and I fell in love with it. —Linda Baumann, Richfield, Wisconsin
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 15 min. Cook: 4 hours YIELD:4 servings

Ingredients

  • 4 bone-in chicken breast halves (12 to 14 ounces each), skin removed
  • 2 cups marinara sauce
  • 1 medium tomato, chopped
  • 1/2 cup Italian salad dressing
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons Italian seasoning
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 1/2 pound uncooked angel hair pasta
  • 1/2 cup shredded part-skim mozzarella cheese

Directions

  • 1. Place chicken in a 4-qt. slow cooker. In a small bowl, combine the marinara sauce, tomato, salad dressing, Italian seasoning and garlic; pour over chicken. Cover and cook on low for 4-5 hours or until chicken is tender.
  • 2. Cook pasta according to package directions; drain. Serve chicken and sauce with pasta; sprinkle with cheese.
    Freeze option: Do not cook pasta. Freeze cooled chicken mixture in freezer containers. To use, partially thaw in refrigerator overnight. Cook pasta according to package directions. Place chicken mixture in a large skillet; heat until a thermometer inserted in chicken reads 165°, stirring occasionally and adding a little water if necessary. Serve as directed. Yield: 4 servings.

"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!"

"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--"

"The sauce in the recipe was really good! The chicken, however, was not. The texture was perfect but the taste was not good. If I made it again, I was just make the sauce."

"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!"
