My family loves for me to make extra chicken so we can have skinny chicken parmesan hoagies the next day. I make a garlic hoagie roll, by lightly buttering the inside of the bread and sprinkling with a little granulated garlic and oregano, then toast. I heat the chicken on a parchment paper lined sheet pan and top it with thinly sliced sharp provolone cheese. Heaven!
- 1/4 C olive oil
- 4 cloves garlic finely minced
- 1 T crushed red pepper flakes or more to taste
- 1 T dried basil
- 1 t dried oregano
- 6 oz tomato paste 1 can
- 1/4 C red wine
- 28 oz pureed San Marzano tomatoes 1 28-oz can
- 6 chicken breasts boneless and skinless
- kosher salt
- freshly ground black pepper
- 1/4 C chopped fresh basil
Heat the olive oil in a dutch oven over medium heat.
Add the wine, garlic, red pepper flakes, basil, and oregano and cook until the garlic is a cooked, about 2 minutes.
Stir in the tomato paste and cook for an additional 5 minutes.
Add the tomatoes and season with salt and black pepper, to taste.
Remove from heat and transfer to slow cooker.
Pat chicken breasts to remove excess moisture, then season with salt and pepper.
Add chicken and cook on high for 6-7 hours on high or 8-9 hours on low.
Sprinkle with torn fresh basil leaves.
* If you like your sauce thicker, remove chicken and keep warm. Then transfer sauce to a saucepan and cook for 7-10 minutes until sauce reduces and is thickened. Top chicken with sauce and serve immediately.
Serve with crusty Italian bread or garlic bread, a simple salad and a glass of Chianti. Sit back and enjoy!
This reheats well just make sure to go low and slow, so the chicken doesn't get tough.
