Let’s talk about how much I love my slow cooker. Basically it’s my right arm in the kitchen. I use it all. year. round. probably 3-4 times a week which means I am using it more often than I am not using it. In fact, and this is the truth you guys, I have 4 slow cookers.

Another thing I love? Fire roasted tomatoes. Who knew that the way you cooked tomatoes could amp up their goodness so much! I adore fresh sweet tomatoes during the summer – baby heirlooms, you are my heaven – but I have a special place in my heart for the tomatoes that are fire roasted to blackened-edge perfection.

When you combine those fire roasted tomatoes with mushrooms, a LOT of garlic, fresh basil and Italian seasonings, all with juicy slow cooked chicken breasts, something truly fantastic happens. Tip: save some of that fresh basil for tossing right on top at the end!

hey girl this looks yummy!

A healthy, delicious dinner already planned for me is pure heaven! Thanks!

This dish sounds pretty good, and also healthy….but personally, I wouldn’t make a meal for my family in the slow cooker more than once a week. We like our meat crispy at times, and we don’t especially care for the ‘braised texture’ from a slow cooker very often. My Slow Cooker definitely has it’s place of honor in my kitchen, but only for certain old tried & true recipes. I still like to use my oven, my broiler, and my indoor grill.

Made this and loved it! The only change that I did was that used 9 small skinless/boneless chicken thighs and a small onion.

It was delicious! I think I added more basil at the end, shred the chicken and ate it like soup.

Thank you for sharing this recipe.
