- Lay chicken meatballs on top and cover with tomato sauce. Gently stir to combine. Scatter the butter pieces over the top.
- Cover and cook on high, 2 to 2 1/2 hours, or on low for 4 to 6 hours, until the meatballs are cooked through and reach 165°F on a digital thermometer. The cooking time may vary based on your slow-cooker, so check to ensure the sauce does not dry out. Turn off heat and allow to cool slightly.
