Crock Pot Italian Chicken

This recipe really couldn't get any easier!  This is an awesome recipe for those busy nights when you  have to run the kids to soccer practice, guitar lessons, etc. & don't have time for a lot of meal prep.

1 - 1 1/2 lbs. boneless, skinless chicken breasts
*1 jar clean marinara sauce (all real food ingredients - tomatoes, garlic, basil, etc.  NO ADDED SUGARS or artificial sweeteners.  I like Victoria All Natural brand.)
2 cups frozen spinach

Throw all the ingredients in the crock pot & cook on low for 6 hours.  Shred the chicken with two forks right before serving.  Stir well.

I serve this over whole wheat pasta, spaghetti squash, or even quinoa.

*If you do not want to use pre-made sauce you can use 1 can low sodium tomato sauce, 1 can no salt added diced tomatoes, 1 Tbls. garlic powder, 1 Tbls. basil, 1 Tbls. oregano, sea salt & black pepper to taste.
