"Thanks Mike for a quick to fix scrumptious dinner. I made a couple of minor changes based on others' feedback. Saute'd onions and garlic in olive oil in my electric skillet, then added the diced tomatoes, 1/2 cup red wine and tomato paste. Tossed in the spices, gave it a stir, added chicken, switched controls to low and walked away. Couldn't stay away, though ... those come-hither aromas got the best of me! Served with semi-sweet red wine, spaghetti and bread salad #9108. Mangia! Tutto bene!"
"I found what was missing from this recipe-- garlic! After reading the reviews, I decided to make this dish, but I added 6 cloves chopped garlic and generous grinds of black pepper. (I also used oregano, basil, thyme and bay leaf in place of the Italian seasoning, but that probably didn't make a difference.) It came out well, and the house smelled wonderful the whole time it was cooking. Next time I will add green peppers and onions, too. Thanks for a good starting point; I am not a whiz at crock pot cooking and this seemed an easy one to try."
"Very easy to make, but needed vegetables. 'Cacciatore' is the Italian word for 'hunter'...and hunter style means prepared with mushrooms and onions and seasoned with fresh herbs and wine. I added the vegetables (mushrooms, onion, celery, peppers, and garlic) and a little dry white wine at the very end before serving."
"Very quick and easy dish. I too, after reading other reviews added a few more ingredients. Onions, green peppers, garlic and a bay leaf. I used a whole chicken that I cut up. I cooked this for 7 hours and served it with rice."
"Loved how easy this recipe was to put together, but really felt it was missing something."
"This tasted okay, but was on the bland side and definitely too watery for my idea of chicken cacciatore. Maybe a can of tomato paste would help. I like a sauce that sticks to the noodles, and this doesn't make that kind of sauce."
"This was so good, and super easy to make. I used chicken breasts and they were falling apart - just perfect! Thanks so much for a wonderful recipe!"
"This recipe was great as a starting point it just needed something more. I added quite a lot to it to get the flavor and consistency I was looking for. Thanks for starting me in the right direction. Also, (my own mistake) I used chicken breasts - skin off, bone-in. I wouldn't have minded the bone except I had to remove them for the kids so that was a pain, but it was what I had defrosted at the time. I would definitely recommend boneless skinless breasts to make life easier. :)"
"This was a good chicken recipe but I feel it was missing something,just not sure what."
"This turned out juicy and delicious! used diced tomatoes and chicken breasts and cooked for about 4 hours on low. Thanks Mike! :)"
"I made this for lunch at a friends daycare. The 2 year olds devoured it. The adults liked what they could try before the kids ate it all. I froze the dish with a layer of provolone cheese on it, then baked it to warm it thru before serving. A definite keeper."
"I substituted chicken tenders for the thighs and they turned out great. Very easy to make and tasted fabolous. I served over rice with crusty bread. Yum... thanks for the post!"
"Yummy! Skinned the thighs and let it cook all day while we were at work. Served it with rice and toasted sourdough bread. It was a hit with my bunch."
"This was so easy and very tasty. I used chicken breasts, added onion and garlic and served it with rice. Thanks Mike."
"We made this for guests over the weekend--very tasty! I used mostly thighs, but half way through added a couple breasts. I also added a whole sweet onion, red, yellow and green peppers and fresh halved mushrooms. Served it with bowtie pasta and a large green salad. Since I had a 28 oz. can of crushed tomatoes with added puree I added my own garlic and basil. I also included about 1/3 cup of dry red wine. I will definitely make this again--it is so easy and delicious!"
"We loved this, it was simple, yet tasty, always my favorite type of recipe. I too put the chicken in frozen and cooked it on low for about 7.5 hours. The last hour I added about 1 cup of pre-made marinara sauce, just for our consistency preference. The chicken was so tender and flavorful. Thanks sharing a great recipe."
"Super easy! Made a couple of changes: used Italian flavored stewed tomatoes and a spoonful of pizza seasoning, and at the end added a half a jar of spaghetti sauce to thicken it up a bit. I started with frozen chicken breasts and cooked it on low all day. Served it over wide egg noodles. Great recipe!"
"I was surprised at how tasty this was, with so few ingredients! I used roasted garlic crushed tomatoes (could not find one with basil and garlic). And I left the skin on. I loved the flavor of the skin, so the only change I would make next time is to skim the fat from the sauce before serving."
"This recipe was awesome! And very simple. I used unsalted diced tomatoes, 40 oz. frozen chicken tenderloins, sliced mushrooms, minced garlic, fresh basil, italian seasoning, salt, pepper, and 1/2 c wine. My husband forgot to turn the crockpot off so it cooked for 8 hours on low, and it was wonderful over spaghetti noodles."
"This was very good and simple to make. I did add green and yellow bell peppers and a little bit of garlic and I used skin-on bone-in thighs and cooked on low for about 6 hrs. It was very much enjoyed and we'll be having this again soon. Thanks for posting the recipe."
