Italian Chicken Stuffed Shells {pinterest inspired}

4 Chicken breasts – Italian seasoning – 2 jars red sauce of your choice – mozzarella cheese – shredded parmesan cheese – large pasta shells – salt & pepper.

IN CROCK POT

spray crock pot with pam. First I seasoned both sides of all 4 chicken breasts with my Italian seasoning and salt and pepper. then I placed them in crock pot. I poured 1 jar of red sauce in the crock pot over chicken. Let cook on low for 4-5 hours, keep checking your chicken, once cooked thoroughly, start shredding your chicken with a fork while it is in crock pot. Then prepare your shells. Once cooked al dente drain and place in a large bowl off to side. Once shells have cooled, start stuffing them with the filling that is in the crock pot. Ricotta cheese would DEFINITELY help this recipe and help hold the shells together but I forgot to buy it that night and just did with out. so take a spoon and start carefully dipping out the chicken and red sauce out of the crockpot and putting into the shell. place the shells one by one carefully in a casserole dish sitting up right as best as you can. once all the shells are stuffed, carefully pour the 2nd jar of red sauce around the shells in the dish. Then sprinkle the entire dish with all the cheese. I used half a bag of mozzarella and a whole bag of parmesan. Bake at 350 for about 15 minutes. let cool and serve with garlic bread. yum!
