This checken cacciatore is about as easy as opening a few jars and throwing a few things in. Voila, the crock pot does the rest. And may I say it is majorly delicious. Lots of flavor. Oh and pretty light.
Adapted from Not Your Mothers Slow Cooker Cookbook
6 skinless chicken thighs (you could put in more without increasing the liquid)
1 cup chopped onion
4 garlic cloves
12 ounces sliced mushrooms
1 cup chopped red pepper
1/2 cup white wine ( I used one that was on the dry side)
1 jar of your favorite sauce
1 jar of stewed tomatoes, flavored if you like- I used my homemade tomato soup with vegetables
Throw it all in the crock pot. Set on low for seven or eight hours. Set on high for four to five hours. Serve with pasta and bread for sopping all those flavorful juices.
*If you want it thick make a small amount of slurry with 1/4 cup flour and a tablespoon or two of water. Mix well and then stir into the mixture an hour before it is done.
