How to make marinara chicken with angel hair pasta in a slow cooker

Print this recipe
Angel hair pasta is one of my favorites. It's delicate and can hold a sauce so well. The texture is tender and when cooked to the perfect al dente it still has just the right amount of bite.
In this recipe we break it down to the basics. Slow cooking boneless skinless chicken breast in marinara sauce, garlic, thyme, oregano and tomato paste . We then slice the chicken breast and return it back to the slow cooker mixing it all together with the angel hair. Topped off with some freshly grated parmesan cheese and you have a meal so easy and so good you'll be making it more than expected.
