  • 3-3.5 lbs chicken breast
  • 1/2 white onion
  • 1 1/2 cups white mushrooms sliced
  • 1 1/2 cups orange or red bell peppers sliced
  • 30 oz canned crushed tomatoes
  • 1/2 cup chicken broth
  • 1/2 cup white wine
  • 5-6 cloves garlic
  • 2 tbsp sugar
  • 1/2 tbsp salt more if needed
  • 1/4 tsp pepper
  • 2-3 springs thyme
  • 1 bay leaf


  • Slice onions, bell peppers, and mushrooms. Slice chicken breasts into thinner slices if they are super thick.
  • Add crushed tomatoes, chicken broth, white wine, garlic, sugar, salt and pepper to slow cooker. Mix to combine.
  • Add slices of chicken breast to slow cooker. Then add onions, bell pepper, mushrooms, thyme and bay leaf. Use a spoon to submerge the ingredients into the sauce as much as possible (okay if not fully submerged).
  • Cook on high for 3.5-4 hours. 
  • Taste and add more salt if needed. Salt will open up the flavors of the sauce.
  • Remove bay leaf, thyme and garlic pieces. Serve chicken with (lots of) sauce over a bed of rice. Enjoy!
