Hungry for something simple? I was up for trying something new in the slow cooker last week. While I’ve made made many chicken dishes using a jar of salsa, I hadn’t tried cooking with a jar of marinara sauce. Pretty exciting to have yet another option for dinner with simple ingredients tossed right into the cooker. Love it.
I have to admit, for my first try, this came out a winner. I wanted to amp up the flavor of the sauce by adding something zesty. Lately I’ve been totally digging banana peppers. Yum. Then, I added some olives for an extra pop of flavor and contrast. Something was missing though and it was black pepper! Just a few sprinkles really balances this dish out nicely.
Want a quick and easy meal too? Give this a try. I promise, it’s ridiculously easy!
Stir it up with me. What slow cooker recipes have you tried recently?
