Clean Eating Chicken Lasagna in a Crock Pot

This is a dinner that screams sunshine and warmth. The combination of cheeses reminds me of a hearty lasagna, but the tomato and cream sauce lightens it up.

The fresh basil is my favorite part. If you have been ready for winter to be over, you need some fresh basil in your life. It’ll help. I promise.

You’ll Need:

  • 1 pound boneless, skinless chicken breast
  • 1 cup uncooked whole grain penne
  • 1/2 cup ricotta cheese
  • 1 onion, diced
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced
  • 4 ripe tomatoes, diced
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream
  • 1/2 cup mozzarella cheese, cut into small cubes
  • 1/4 cup shredded Parmesan
  • 8 basil leaves, cut into thin strips
  • Salt and pepper to taste


  1. Add chicken, onion, garlic and tomatoes to a crock-pot.
  2. Cook on low for 4 hours, or until chicken is cooked through.
  3. Add in heavy cream and penne, turn up to high, and cook 30 minutes, or until pasta is al dente.
  4. Add remaining ingredients, stir well, and cook an additional 10 minutes, or until cheese is melted.
