Chicken Cacciatore (Slow Cooker)
When I search for chicken cacciatore recipes, I’m surprised by how different they all look. Some look like chicken parmesan, one looks like a stew, and countless others are somewhere in between. I don’t know if this recipe is what you picture when you think of chicken cacciatore, but I do know that it tastes good.
I used boneless skinless chicken breasts for this recipe, but thighs would work well too, or a combination. You should use skinless pieces, but it would be okay to use bone-in. In fact, if you like moist chicken, bone-in chicken thighs are a great economical choice. Boneless breasts are a great choice, though, and these turned out very moist.
Most chicken cacciatore recipes include mushrooms. I enjoy them, but not all of my family does, so I didn’t use any. If you like mushrooms, just add sliced mushrooms of choice to the bottom of the crock pot with the vegetables.
