Need a recipe to make even on the busiest of days? My Crock Pot Chicken in a Paleo Tomato Cream aka Italian Vodka Sauce is not only delicious but it is so easy to make. You literally have to just plop in the ingredients into your crock pot and "set it and forget it." What are you waiting for? Go make this NOW!
Ingredients
  • 3lbs of chicken breasts, cleaned and left whole
  • 1 (28 oz) can of tomato sauce, natural and without added sugars
  • 1 (14.5 oz) coconut milk, full fat
  • 2 teaspoons of garlic powder
  • 2 teaspoons of Italian seasoning
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 teaspoon of red pepper flakes (optional for those of you who like an extra kick and can tolerate the heat)
  • basil for garnishing
  • Serve with faux-noodles:
  • Zucchini to make zoodles or spaghetti squash
Instructions
  1. Clean off your chicken breasts and cut off any fat or veins and freeze for a rainy day.
  2. Plop your chicken at the bottom of your crock pot
  3. Combine your tomato sauce, coconut milk and spices in a bowl and pour over the chicken.
  4. Walk away for 4-8 hours. If your chicken is fresh, I would cook it for 4-5 hours. If it is frozen, then cook it for 7-8 hours.
  5. While the chicken is almost done, prepare your zucchini zoodles or spaghetti squash. If you are making spaghetti squash noodles you will need to roast it an hour prior or you can nuke it in the microwave for 15 minutes.
  6. Serve chicken over faux noodles and be prepared to be wowed!
