Chicken and pepperonis are something that is always on hand at our house.. The kids love the taste of both of them and of course the chicken is always a healthy meal to serve up. I love that this recipe combines both of them AND throws it all into a crock pot to boot! Awesome! The family really liked this recipe and there wasn't any left over to send with the hubs the next day...
Slow Cooker Pepperoni Chicken
(recipe found on pinterest via www.skinnymom.com)
2 pounds boneless, skinless chicken breasts
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
2 3/4 ounces turkey pepperoni (about 40 slices), sliced in half
1/4 cup black olives, sliced
3/4 cup chicken broth
1 tablespoon tomato paste
1 teaspoon italian seasoning
3/4 cup shredded, mozzarella cheese
Place chicken in a slow cooker. Sprinkle chicken with salt and pepper. Cut pepperoni slices in half. Add pepperoni and olives to cooker. In a small bowl, whisk together chicken broth, tomato paste and Italian seasoning. Pour mixture in cooker. Cover and cook on low-heat setting for 6 to 7 hours or on high-heat setting for 3 to 3 1/2 hours. Five minutes before you serve, sprinkle cheese on top of chicken. Cover with lid and allow cheese to melt.
Using a slotted spoon, transfer chicken, pepperoni and olives to plates. Discard cooking liquid.
