Thick delicious chicken cacciatore that has simmered in the Crock-Pot all day is the perfect dinner after a long day's work. Simply prepare the ingredients in the morning before heading off to work and add them to your Crock-Pot. Set on low and allow it to cook while you are away. Cook up some fresh pasta when you return, and you have an entire meal ready in minutes.
Things You'll Need
- 2-3 lb. whole chicken (cut up)
- 1 green pepper (diced)
- 4 oz. fresh mushrooms (sliced)
- 1 15 oz. can diced tomatoes
- 1 8 oz. can tomato sauce
- 1 clove fresh garlic
- 1 tsp. salt
- 1/4 tsp. pepper
- 1-2 fresh oregano leaves
- 1/2 tsp. chopped fresh basil
- 1 bay leaf
Wash chicken pieces under cold water and pat dry with a paper towel. You can purchase a whole chicken that has already been cut into pieces in the meat aisle, but boneless chicken breast, drumsticks or thighs can be used as well. Set aside.
Slice two medium onions and layer them on the bottom of the Crock-Pot. Add the chicken.
Dice the green pepper, slice the mushrooms and mince the basil, oregano and garlic.
Mix the tomato sauce and diced tomatoes in a bowl. Add green peppers, mushrooms, garlic and spices. Mix thoroughly.
Pour the sauce over the chicken and onions.
Cook on low for six to eight hours or on high for four hours. Serve over fresh pasta or rice.
