Very yummy and super easy!! I used Wegmans roasted garlic spaghetti sauce and followed the directions exactly (cooked it for 7 hours). The chicken fell apart easily and my husband loved it! Such an easy weeknight meal! I will be making this again!

This recipe was wonderful, easy, tasty, delicious! Everyone loved it, so it goes straight into the "make again" book. The only change I made was to use one green pepper and one red pepper. I think for next time I'll add some crushed red pepper for heat and maybe some zucchini from the garden, but the recipe is wonderful as is too. A good quality spaghetti sauce is a must - I used fire-roasted tomato and garlic sauce. My slow-cooker cooks quicker than my old one did. It took only 5 hours. Thank you for a keeper!
