Crockpot Chicken Cacciatore

I am falling in LOVE with the crockpot! It's perfect for the family on the go! Throw in some food in the morning and have a delish meal for dinner! This recipe is no different! I found my Chicken Cacciatore recipe from Family Fresh Meals, and it has the perfect balance of spice and freshness! Here's my rendition:

Ingredients
1 & 1/2 lbs boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cut into portion-size
3-4 minced garlic cloves
28 oz diced tomatoes
6 oz tomato paste
1 bell pepper, thinly sliced 
*I only had green pepper on hand, but you can do whatever color you would like!*
1 small onion, diced
1 tsp. dried oregano
1 tsp. dried basil
1 tsp. salt + some for seasoning the chicken
1/2 tsp. pepper + some for seasoning chicken
1 bay leaf
1/4 cup water
1 package of your favorite pasta, prepared

Directions
1. Start by seasoning your chicken with salt and pepper, and put into the crockpot

2. Next, add minced garlic, and the rest of the spices.

3. Chop onion and peppers, and add into the crockpot.

4. Add diced tomatoes, tomato paste, and water, and mix all of it together in the crockpot.

5. Set crockpot on low for 7 hours or high for 4 hours. I preferred the low, so that all of the flavors can marinate and meld, and the chicken is literally falling apart!
6. Serve over your favorite pasta! Enjoy!

**If you are going for a healthier version, you could also serve it over a salad, or brown rice!
