Slow Cooker Chicken Cacciatore

I love using my slow cooker.  It is a wonderful feeling to get up and get dinner in the crockpot in the morning and not have to worry about it the rest of the day!  This recipe is a wonderful, kid friendly recipe.  You can use any spices that you like to make it your own!

4-6 skinless, boneless chicken breasts
1 jar of your favorite spaghetti sauce (I would NOT reccommend Ragu.  It makes this too watery.  I use Classico sauces.  If Ragu is all you have, add a small jar of tomato sauce.)
1 green bell pepper
1 cup of fresh mushrooms
2 TBS. chopped fresh garlic
1 teaspoon of oregano
1 teaspoon of dried basil

Place chicken in the bottom of your slow cooker.  In a small bowl mix the rest of the ingredients and pour over chicken covering it completely. 
Cover and cook on low heat for 6-8 hours or on high for 4-5.
Serve over your favorite cooked pasta and sprinkle with Parmesan Cheese.
