Easy Chicken Cacciatore in the Crockpot
  • 4 large or 6 small bone-in or boneless skinless chicken thighs or 2-3 chicken breasts(I used 6 small chicken breasts)
  • 1 t kosher salt
  • ½ t freshly ground pepper
  • ½ large onion, sliced into half moons
  • ¾ cup sliced carrots, ¼ inch thick (I cut baby carrots into thirds)
  • 4 ounces mushrooms, quartered
  • 1 red bell pepper, seeded and sliced ¼ inch thick
  • 1 (14½ ounce) can diced tomatoes (I used crushed)
  • 3 T tomato paste
  • 2 garlic cloves grated (I used jarred minced garlic)
  • 2 t dried parsley
  1. Chop up the veggies and place them in the bottom of the crockpot.
  2. Rub your chicken pieces with salt and pepper. As you can see my chicken is frozen- no worries.
  3. Place the chicken on top of the veggies.
  4. Mix the tomatoes, tomato paste, garlic and dried parsley.
  5. Pour the mixture over the chicken.
  6. Spread the tomato mixture over the chicken pieces evenly.
  7. Cover and cook on low for 4-6 hours. (I cooked on high for 4 hours. )
  8. If you want to reduce the liquid once the chicken is done cooking, remove the chicken from the crockpot and pour the veggies and sauce into a large saucepan. Bring the sauce to a boil and then reduce to a simmer for 10 minutes uncovered, or until it is thickened. I omitted this step.
  9. Serve the chicken and veggies over a pile of rice or a serving of your favorite noodles.
