Today I'm making an easy crock-pot chicken dinner I'm Tess and come join me as I make an easy and delicious chicken cacciatore in the slow cooker
(intro music) I love a slow cooker meal! This chicken cacciatore meal is a hearty and comforting meal It is easy on the budget and the family will love it So let's get started! Everything goes in the crock pot and I'm starting with the sauce I have two large cans of tomato sauce but you can cut this down to one can if you don't want a lot of sauce Still keep the seasonings the same amount because you will have a lot of chicken and vegetables to flavor
I'm adding in a little salt, black pepper, a couple tablespoons of tomato paste to keep the sauce from thinning, gotta have some minced garlic, red pepper flakes for a little kick and this is optional, basil, oregano, a handful of chopped fresh parsley and a couple sprigs of fresh rosemary from my garden If you wanted another depth of flavor you could add in a quarter or a half a cup of red wine Giving everything a good mix For the vegetables you can use whatever you like Today I'm adding in some diced onions, green bell peppers, carrots and celery
I'm keeping them in rustic sized pieces so they don't get lost in the cooking In the past I have added veggies like zucchini, mushrooms and even potatoes Giving that another good toss Now I'm adding in the chicken I'm using chicken thighs that I removed the skin and most of the fat
I don't want a lot of fat in this dish Just placing the chicken in and pushing down to make sure that they are covered with that delicious sauce Lid goes on the slow cooker and cooking on high for three to four hours or six to seven hours on the low setting It's been four hours and it's time to eat! You can see this produced a lot of sauce but we like the leftovers with more pasta, a side salad and garlic bread The chicken is done and starting to fall off the bone
It smells wonderful! You can serve this chicken cacciatore with pasta, rice or potatoes Tonight I'm serving with some linguine and topping with some grated Parmesan cheese This slow cooker chicken dinner is a winner every time!
