Crock Pot Chicken Cacciatore


Cacciatore means "hunter" in Italian, so chicken cacciatore is literally "chicken hunter's style". This dish is a little tricky in the crock pot, as water tends to come out of the vegetables and make the sauce too thin. This is why I sauté the vegetables beforehand, reduce the liquid, and add tomato paste. This also speeds the cooking time. The Parmesan cheese rind trick is something I learned from Cook's Illustrated magazine. It adds a savory depth of flavor to the sauce. This recipe is also, of course, lower in carbs than a traditional chicken cacciatore.


3 lbs skinless chicken thighs
1 c onion, chopped
1 green bell pepper, chopped
8 oz crimini mushrooms, chopped
4 cloves garlic
1 tsp olive oil
14 oz chopped tomatoes
2/3 c dry wine (red or white)
1 tsp oregano
1 tsp basil
1 tsp thyme
salt and pepper, to taste
1/3 c tomato paste
1-inch piece Parmesan cheese rind, optional
