Crockpot Chicken Pisano Recipe

There's nothing better than coming home to a great hot meal after working all day! Set it and forget it!
Amazing how tender the chicken is not to mention the fresh taste of the sauce.  Almost like a mock chicken Parmesan. No breading. Allot healthier than fried chicken and still with all the taste!

Here's all you have to do:
4 boneless chicken breasts
1 can crushed tomatoes 28 ounce size or 2 pounds of fresh plum tomatoes pureed
2 fresh basil leaves or 1 teaspoon dried basil
1 teaspoon each dried parsley and oregano
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 cup Moscato Red Wine (or other sweet red wine)
1 teaspoon salt and pepper
optional pinch of cayenne pepper
Pasta of choice  boiled to package instructions kept warm set aside(above is spiral macaroni)
grating cheese
mozzarella cheese shredded

In a 5 or 7 quart crockpot, pour in the tomatoes, spices, herbs and wine. Place chicken on top of the sauce stirring to coat. Place on low for 8 to 10 hours.
When you come home from a long hard days work, boil the pasta, drain. 
Place on a plate, sprinkle generously with grating cheese, mozzarella cheese, top with hot tomato sauce. Place chicken on top. Garnish with grating cheese, serve with some fresh crusty Italian bread.
