Slow Cooker Chicken Cacciatore

Hunter Style Chicken simmered in a rich tomato sauce, made easy in your slow cooker.

Italian dishes are usually hearty, rich and flavorful and this slow cooker chicken cacciatore is no exception. This is a recipe that I promise you will enjoy any time of the year, over and over again. It’s slow cooked comfort food but it’s not too heavy,  it’s perfect in the summer. 

Slow Cooker Chicken cacciatore - taste the difference and help give to feeding america

Chicken cacciatore is usually cooked slow and low in an oven, but I’ve changed it up a bit to give you the same great flavor but a lot less time and babysitting.   During the year when school is going crazy, sports are happening and I am working I don’t always have time to make dinner for my family. My slow cooker helps a ton with this task. I love a good family style dinner.

I’m making this slow cooker dinner for my birthday. I wanted to make this quick so I use jarred pasta sauce instead of a can of diced tomatoes so it would have more flavor. This Italian chicken dish is rich and flavorful with basil, tomatoes, peppers. It’s hearty and filling and awesome with garlic bread and a salad.
