Well hello my friends and happy new year! Welcome to the first new recipe of 2017!
Who’s totally psyched for the new year? I know I am! I’ve got some exciting new projects for the new year including a web series, “29 Minute Meals” which premieres TOMORROW on YouTube, but you can watch the trailer right here, right now!
In 2017 I’ll be posting new recipes made in 29 minutes or less, in one pot or in a crock pot on the blog every Monday, Tuesday and Thursday, with new episodes of “29 Minute Meals” premiering every Wednesday on my YouTube channel! In case you weren’t counting, that’s four days of fun every single week in 2017!
Now, let’s get to the first new recipe of 2017, Chicken Ragu!
If you love my Slow Cooker Beef Ragu (the 2nd most popular recipe of all time on the blog!) then you’re definitely going to love this Slow Cooker Chicken Ragu!
We’re all looking for quick, easy and deliciously flavorful recipes, am I right?! Well this recipe hits that nail on the head! The prep time is just 10 minutes, then the slow cooker does all of the work to make this a deliciously flavorful dinner!
- 1 large onion (sliced)
- 4 garlic cloves
- 2 tbsp fresh rosemary (chopped)
- 2 lbs chicken breasts (boneless, skinless)
- 1 tsp kosher salt
- 1 tsp black pepper
- 2 cups chicken broth
- ¼ cup red wine
- 1 can (6 oz) tomato paste
- 1 can (15 oz) diced tomatoes
- 12 oz papparadelle pasta or creamy polenta
- ½ cup parmesan cheese (grated) – optional topping
- ½ cup mozzarella cheese (grated) – optional topping
Add the onion, garlic cloves and fresh rosemary to the bottom of a slow cooker.
Season the chicken with the salt and pepper, then add to the slow cooker.
In a medium bowl, combine the chicken broth, red wine and tomato paste.
Pour the mixture over the chicken.
Add the can of diced tomatoes to the slow cooker.
Cook on low for 8-9 hours, or on high for 4-5 hours.
Reach a fork into the crock pot and the chicken will pull right apart.
Use a ladle to pour the chicken ragu and tomato sauce from the slow cooker over the polenta or pasta.
Top with fresh grated parmesan or mozzarella cheese (or both if you’re like me and LOVE cheese!)
This recipe easily serves 4-6 people, but also makes great leftovers if you’re only cooking for 2 people, like me!
