Slow Cooker Chicken & Veggies Marinara Recipe

I shared in this podcast episode on 13 Healthy Meal Prep Tips how I used to make freezer slow cooker meals, and this was one of my go-to’s. It can be easily made ahead of time and frozen for later by placing all the ingredients in a slow cooker liner and then freezing that bag. Thaw and place the bag directly in the slow cooker for easy prep and no fuss cleanup.

This recipe can be made gluten-free, dairy-free, and low-carb.

Want to add pasta to this dish?  I have the easiest trick in the world.  Be sure to read the recipe for directions, but all you need to do is pour a box over the top of the slow cooker dish and continue to cook, and voila. A delicious dish.

Bon appetit!
