Chicken Pasta Recipe
· 40 oz of skinless chicken, which could be trimmed to reduce the size
· 1/2 tsp of kosher salt
· Grounded black pepper
· Spray for cooking
· 4 medium-sized garlic cloves that are chopped finely
· Crushed tomatoes of about 28 ounce
· Half-sized red pepper that is chopped
· 4 oz shiitake mushrooms that are sliced
· Fresh spring thyme
· Fresh spring oregano
· One bay of leaf
· 1 tbsp of fresh parsley
· Grated parmesan cheese that is freshly grated
Arrange the chicken with pepper and salt for it to taste very well. Heat it with a big nonstick skillet and let the heat get to around medium heat. Make sure you coat the chicken with cooking spray and then cook the added chicken until it looks brown for about 3 minutes. Take it to your slow cooker, and if you are making use of chicken breast, this step can be skipped, and you could put the chicken into the slow cooker.
Then you could reduce the amount of heat to medium and then add more spray for cooking. Make sure you add onion and garlic and make sure it cooks while you are stirring everything for about 3 to 4 minutes. Then take it to the slow cooker and add the oregano, thyme, and bay leaf. Mix everything to combine. Cover the pot and cook for about 4 hours or with low heat for about 8 hours.
Get rid of the bay leaf and get the chicken to a large plate. Get the chicken meat out of the bones, shred it, and put it into the sauce. Mix it into the parsley if you are using that and top it all off on the pasta.
