Easy Chicken Cacciatore

chicken-cacciatore_629

This comfort food recipe is sent with love to busy family and friends living in places where it’s FREEZING! Toss ingredients below into a crock pot:

  • 1 chopped yellow onion
  • 1 chopped red/orange pepper
  • 2/3 can of tomato paste ( 3-4 TBSP)
  • 1/2 cup of red wine
  • as much garlic, salt and red pepper flakes as you like
  • 1 14oz can diced tomatoes

Stir it up good and nestle about 6 frozen, boneless, skinless chicken thighs into sauce. (Individual pieces, not one big clump) I prefer thighs–they stay nice and moist-unlike breasts. Lay whole fresh mushrooms on top of  sauce. (I don’t mix the mushrooms into the sauce to cook as they get super soggy…ew!) Before serving, I remove the mushrooms, slice ’em up and then add back to the chicken and sauce. Cook in crock pot for 6 hours on HIGH..(maybe 8 or 9 hours on LOW?) Serve with parmesan and sliced olives over pasta. I made this yesterday and the house smelled FANTASTICO when we all got home!
