I love crock pot meals when I don’t feel like cooking. I tend to just toss a bunch of stuff in the crock pot and say a little prayer. Most of the time it works. This Chicken Cacciatore definitely worked. It was a hit in my house.
All I know of Chicken Cacciatore is that it is chicken with tomato sauce and peppers and onions. Normally it is bone in chicken but I prefer boneless, skinless thighs for crock pot meals. I had some chicken, a pepper, a ton of onions, and a can of tomatoes so this became one of our dinners last week. I served it on top of zucchini noodles. This shouldn’t take more than 5-10 min to prep because all you need to do is slice 2 onion, 1 pepper, and some garlic and then just dump everything into the crock pot. I make my zucchini noodles using this spiralizer. They come out perfect every time and I like the option to make fat or thin noodles.
Crock Pot Chicken Cacciatore
Ingredients (serves 6):
2.5-3 pounds boneless, skinless chicken thighs
1 large can whole peeled tomatoes
1 sweet pepper, seeded and sliced
2 small onions, peeled and sliced
3 cloves of garlic, peeled and sliced
1 tsp dried oregano
2 tsp dried parsley
1 tsp dried basil
1 tsp salt
Put all the ingredients into a crock pot. Cook on low for 6-8 hours or on high for 3-4 hours until the chicken is tender and at least 160 degrees. The chicken should fall apart. You may want to add more salt at this point. Just taste and sprinkle until you like it. Serve with zucchini noodles or spaghetti squash.
