Ingredients
3 pounds boneless, skinless chicken breasts
4 tablespoons Simple Spaghetti Sauce Blend
2- 14.5 oz cans petite diced tomatoes

Directions

  1. Place the chicken breasts in a 6 quart slow cooker. In a small bowl, combine the seasoning blend and tomatoes.  Pour over chicken. 
  2. Cook on low for 6 hours or high for 4 hours.  It is ready to serve when the chicken is tender and no longer pink in the center. 
  3. The finished dish will create a sauce to serve with the chicken, so this dish is best served over pasta or rice.  Top with mozzarella or Parmesan cheese as desired.  
SERVING OPTION:
Shred the chicken in its sauce and toss with pasta.  

BAKING OPTION:
Place the chicken breasts in a 9x13 baking dish.  Pour the seasoned tomatoes over the chicken and bake at 350 for about an hour or until the chicken is no longer pink in the center. 



Fill the Freezer:Dinner's In the Bag!
Fill a gallon sized freezer bag (or 2!) with the list of ingredients, remove extra air from the bag, seal and squish to combine.  Label the bag with the recipe name and date. Lay flat in freezer and store for another day. To prepare, thaw enough to remove from the bag and follow directions for slow cooker or baking.  Fill as many bags as you like!

Get the Kids Cooking:
Making frozen meals in a bag is a great time to get the kids involved.  They can fill bags, squish bags or even label bags if old enough.  Line up the supplies and let them help!


Add some extra chicken breasts to the recipe and use later in an Italian flavored recipe that calls for shredded chicken.  Shred a couple of breasts and freeze in a quart sized freezer bag.
