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

  • 1/4 C red wine

  • kosher salt
  • freshly ground black pepper
  • 1/4 C chopped fresh basil

  • 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.
  • Serve immediately.
  • * 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.

Notes

 
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.
