Crockpot Chicken Cacciatore
Recipe type: Entrees
Cuisine: American
Serves: 6
  • 1 large onion thinly sliced (you may need two depending on the size of your crockpot. You want the sliced onions to cover the bottom completely.
  • 3-4 pounds of chicken parts cut up (I use bone-in chicken and cook the chicken with the skin on and remove the skin after it’s cooked. I think cooking with the skin on helps keep the chicken moist, especially white meat.)
  • 16 ounces of tomato sauce or pasta sauce (I use Silver Palate Marinara. It’s all “real” ingredients)
  • 12 ounces of fresh mushrooms, sliced
  • ½ teaspoon black pepper
  • 5 cloves garlic, minced
  • 4 teaspoons dried oregano
  • 2 teaspoons dried basil
  1. Place the thinly sliced onions so they cover the bottom of the crockpot.
  2. Add the chicken on top of the onions.
  3. In a separate bowl, combine the sauce, seasonings and fresh mushrooms so the mushrooms are coated.
  4. Pour the mixture over the chicken.
  5. Cook on high 3 to 4 hours or on low 7 to 9 hours or until the chicken is done.
