Slow Cooker Chicken Cacciatore

This recipe came from the Crock Pot website but I have adapted it to my taste as I thought the original recipe was very bland. I was very surprised at how much my family and I enjoyed this dish. It is appropriate for a family dinner or is "fancy" enough for company.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Evenly spread olive oil in the bottom of the stoneware.
  2. Spread onions evenly over bottom of stoneware.
  3. Layer chicken over onions.
  4. Layer mushrooms and garlic over chicken.
  5. Mix the rest of the ingredients (flour through kosher salt) in a bowl and pour evenly over chicken.
  6. Cover and cook on low 7 to 8 hours.
  7. Serve over pasta of your choice.

It was great. It was actually too spicy for me after the 5th bite but it had such a great flavor. Thanks for sharing.

I liked this one a lot, but I did alter it somewhat. First, to serve 5 adults and 2 children, I used an entire chicken, skinned and trimmed of most fat and butterflied. I added one skinless, boneless chicken breast. I used 8 oz of mushrooms pieces; a full can (28 oz) of Italian plum tomatoes; added a green pepper, sliced lengthwise; and used only 1 cup of red wine. Served with rice and over a bed of sauteed broccoli rabe.
