This Slow Cooker Italian Red Pepper Chicken is simple, packed with flavor, and versatile. Serve it over pasta or rice, in a sandwich with melted cheese, layered on a pizza, or even scrambled into your morning eggs.

For a long time I have been making this Slow Cooker Tomato Balsamic Chicken dish on the regular to have for quick and easy weeknight dinners, but lately I have been looking to kick up the recipe a bit as I have been craving all things spicy. Red pepper flakes were a no-brainer, but I also want to deepen the flavor of the sauce with something new and decided red bell peppers were the perfect thing. With their sweet flavor, they balance out the red pepper flakes and black pepper.

I will need to have my slow cooker on for 8 hours - will that effect the recipe?
