Slow Cooker Italian Chicken Recipe

I mentioned this in my second Slow Cooker Favourites post and said that I wanted to do a recipe post on it, so here it is! This is something I just sort of went for, didn't really know what I was doing, didn't follow a recipe and just hoped it turned out okay!
Ingredients: (for 2 people)
2 Chicken breasts
1 red onion, finely diced
1 pepper or a handful of frozen
1 tin of chopped tomatoes
1 tin of water (I refill the tomato one rather than using a jug)
2 tbsp of tomato puree
Salt & Pepper
Loads of italian seasoning
A little chilli powder 

1. Finely dice your onion and pepper and put into the slow cooker
2. Cut any bad bits of the chicken and place in the slow cooker, I don't like to cut into chunks as I like to shred it at the end instead
3. Stir then pour in 1 tin of chopped tomatoes, re fill the tin with cold water and pour that in too
4. I then added in 2 tbsp of tomato puree and gave everything a stir
5. Finally add in as much seasoning you want, I used salt, pepper, italian herbs and a tiny bit of chilli powder. How much is really up to you and what you like
6. Leave on high for 4 hours or if you'd prefer you can cook on low for 8 hours. After either 4 or 8 hours, take chicken out and shred, it should pull apart with two forks really easily
7. Put chicken back into slow cooker and stir in with all the sauce, now serve with rice or pasta!

That's it, really easy to make and a perfect one for days you might be working or just don't want to spend ages cooking. It tastes delicious - the tomato and herb sauce that I just winged went really well with the chicken and it was lovely with rice but you can serve with whatever you want. I think it would go really nice with new potatoes and salad in summer!

Let me know if you ever give this recipe a try!
