A Super Slow Cooker Chicken Cacciatore

READY IN: 2hrs 30mins
Recipe by ChefDLH

This came from a Slow Cooker Family recipe book and uses lots of things you probably have in the pantry and fridge already.It is prepared hunter style which means it is slowly cooked in a tomato sauce seasoned with onions and herbs. You can serve it over spaghetti or with roasted potatoes. We serve it over spaghetti for a great adult entree. Our kids loved it too and ate it happily. It is so much more than a spaghetti sauce. Not as sweet and oh so good. If you substitute breasts for thighs check on it earlier than outer cooking time as they dry faster. You will enjoy this. Picky eaters will too. Serve it for a leisurely family dinner or a quick weeknight meal. Enjoy ChefDLH.

I used boneless chicken breast cut in large pieces. I used tomato sauce but think that it really needs the spaghetti sauce to give it a bit more flavor. Next time I make this I will omit the celery and add green peppers. Loved the addition of the white wine. Cooked on high for 3 hours. Made for the crock-pot challenge in the cooking photo fourm.
