Servings: 6
Calories: 492kcal


  • 2 ½ pounds boneless skinless chicken breasts
  • 2 teaspoons minced garlic
  • 1 cup tomato sauce
  • 1 cup evaporated milk , cream, or dairy-free substitute
  • 2 tablespoons cornstarch
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1 tablespoon dried Italian seasoning
  • ½ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • ¼ cup fresh basil , sliced into thin strips (chiffonade), more for garnish
  • 12 ounces gluten-free spaghetti (I like Jovial brand)


  • Place the chicken breasts in the bottom of the slow cooker and top with the garlic.
  • In a medium bowl, whisk together the tomato sauce, milk, cornstarch, salt, dried Italian seasoning, and black pepper. Then, pour the mixture over the chicken.
  • Cook the chicken on low for 3 hours or high for 1 ½ hours (or until the internal temperature reaches 165°F).
  • Once cooked, stir the fresh basil into the sauce. Serve the chicken over gluten-free pasta and top with additional fresh basil, if desired.


I like to stir in ½ -1 cup of the pasta cooking water into the sauce and toss the gluten-free spaghetti in the sauce before serving.
