Are you looking for a tasty new chicken recipe that is super easy? Crock Pot Garlic Tomato Chicken is a huge hit in this house!
To say we love this Crock Pot Garlic Tomato Chicken from Gooseberry Patch’s Super Fast Slow Cooking cookbook would be an understatement. We ate it in soft tacos (drained) and ladled over rice while the original recipe called for it to be served over cooked rotini.
Mikey even figured out a trick with his Crock Pot Lunch Warmer… he would put uncooked minute rice (1/2 cup) in the bottom with 1/2 cup broth and then ladle in the garlic chicken we had cooked the day before. Once he got to work, he plugged his warmer in and he said after about 20-30 min it was perfect! He took leftovers that entire week!
Crock Pot Garlic Tomato Chicken Notes
There really aren’t a lot of notes on this dish because it is so simple to throw together.
- We used boneless skinless chicken breasts for this recipe. It would also be good with boneless skinless chicken thighs.
- We used one of our favorite 6 qt slow cookers, however, any 4-6 qt slow cooker should work for this recipe.
Hope you guys enjoy this as much as we do!!
