Crockpot Chicken Cacciatore

Chicken cooked “cacciatore” means a dish prepared “hunter-style” with tomatoes, mushrooms, onions and seasonings. Add a touch of white wine to make yours northern Italian-style. And pour yourself a glass while you’re at it. 😄 Serves 4 Total Time: 4 hours 30 minutes


4 chicken leg quarters 
1/2 teaspoon salt 
1/2 teaspoon pepper 
2 tablespoons olive oil 

1/2 pound sliced fresh mushrooms 
1 medium onion, halved and thinly sliced 
1 medium sweet red pepper, coarsely chopped 
2 garlic cloves, minced 
1-1/2 teaspoons minced fresh oregano or 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano 
1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes 
1/2 teaspoon salt 
1 can (14-1/2 ounces) diced tomatoes, undrained 
1/2 cup white wine or chicken broth 
Fresh oregano and grated Parmesan cheese, optional 


Sprinkle chicken with salt and pepper. In a large skillet, heat oil over medium-high heat. Brown chicken on both sides. In a 5-qt. slow cooker, combine sauce ingredients; arrange chicken over sauce. Cook, covered, on low until chicken and vegetables are tender, 4-6 hours. If desired, top with fresh oregano and grated Parmesan cheese. Yum Yum!
