Number Of Ingredients 12

12 large plum tomatoes, chopped
1 large red onion, chopped
1 large green bell pepper, seeded and julienned
1/2 cup flour, divided in half
2 tablespoons minced garlic, divided in half
4 lbs boneless skinless chicken breasts, sliced in half lengthwise
1 cup sliced mushrooms
1 teaspoon ground black pepper
1 tablespoon paprika
1/2 cup chicken stock
1/2 cup white wine
1 1/2 lbs angel hair pasta

Steps:

  • Set a 6 quart crock pot on high; spray inside with nonstick cooking spray.
  • Begin layering ingredients inside - tomatoes, onion, bell pepper, ¼ cup flour sprinkled evenly over all, 1 tablespoon garlic. Place in the chicken breast pieces and spread the remaining ¼ cup of flour over them. Add the mushrooms, remaining garlic; then evenly sprinkle over the black pepper and paprika. Pour the stock and white wine over the top.
  • Cover and cook for 3 and ½ hours; remove chicken and 1/4 of the vegetables. Use a stand or immersion blender to puree the remaining vegetables, and thicken the liquid. Return the chicken and reserved vegetables to the pot; cover and cook for another half hour before serving. Also during that last half hour, prepare the pasta to desired tenderness; place a serving into bowl and top with sauce, chicken and some vegetables.
