Slow Cooker Italian Chicken

Prep Time: 25 minutes. Cooking Time: 6 hours)

4 chicken breasts or thighs (boneless, skinless preferred)
2 Tablespoons olive oil
½ teaspoon each, salt and freshly ground pepper
1 medium onion, diced
1 (16 ounce) can, diced tomatoes
1 Tablespoon oregano
1 teaspoon sugar

Place olive oil in a fry pan placed on the stove over medium heat. Place chicken breasts in pan and brown on both sides while seasoning each side with salt and pepper (if it splatters a lot, either turn down the heat or tent with foil). Once chicken is golden brown on both sides, remove chicken and place in the bottom of a Crock Pot™ or Slow Cooker. Drain any oil from fry pan (dab with a paper towel if needed) and add diced onion. Sauté the onion for 1-2 minutes without browning. Add diced tomatoes including the liquid from the can to the onions and add oregano and sugar. Simmer for 3-4 minutes. Pour tomato mixture over chicken breasts. Cook on low for 6 hours or on high for 3-4 hours. Check to assure chicken is thoroughly cooked. Serve over rice or pasta.
(Serves 4)
