Slow Roasted Red Pepper Chicken

I finally remembered that I own a crock-pot and that I need to USE it!

This was the first time I tried cooking full chicken breasts with the crock-pot and love love loved how easy it was. Plus, no futzing around with raw meat – I dumped the chicken right from the plastic into the pot.

I looked up some generic recipes for cooking chicken in the crock pot and altered it to what I had in the fridge. (Whenever I make something new, Tuna has started asking me, “Are you going to make it with everything the recipe says?)

Cooking in the crock-pot gives everything so much more flavor! Since I haven’t been able to perfect baked chicken breast in the oven, I was relieved for a better tasting – and easier – solution.

The only downside is that you need to plan ahead because most crock-pot recipes call for at least 4 hours of cooking time.

Added side effect: this recipe fills up your house apartment with wonderful smells.
