Rustic Crockpot Chicken Cacciatore
I am calling this a crockpot meal, however there is some pre-crockpot prep work, where typically my crockpot recipes require dumping everything in the crockpot directly and doing nothing else, but this recipe tastes so much better by locking in the flavors before it hits the crockpot, trust me!
2 lbs Chicken (any part, but I used boneless/skinless this time)
1-2 TSP Olive oil
2 Cloves Garlic (minced)
1/2 C Chopped Onion
1/2 C Chopped Bell Pepper
3/4 C Dry Red Wine
1/2 tsp Oregano
1/4 tsp Crushed Red Pepper
2 14.5 Can of Plum Tomatoes, undrained & chopped
Sprinkle salt & pepper over chicken and set aside. Heat olive oil in large skillet, saute onion, garlic & pepper until soft. Add chicken long enough to brown both sides, then add to crockpot, using the red wine add to skillet and bring to boil while scrapping the pan with a spatula removing excess that was stuck to skillet. Add to the crockpot as well. Add remaining ingredients to crockpot and gentle toss to cover all the chicken.
Set Crock pot to low and allow 4-6 hours to cook. Or set to high and cook in 3-4 hours.
Enjoy with your favorite pasta or as we did with spaghetti squash!
Have a fantastic Day!
