Chicken Cacciatore

Chicken Cacciatore is an Italian dish - the word cacciatore means hunter, and refers to a meal prepared "hunter-style". This is delicious on its own, or over cauliflower rice or spaghetti squash, and making it in a slow-cooker means you've got the time to do other things instead.

  • 3 or 4 chicken breasts, minus skin and bones
  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 1 can diced tomatoes
  • 1/2 can tomato paste
  • 1 green pepper, chopped
  • 2-3 cloves garlic, peeled and chopped
  • optionally, a dozen mushrooms, sliced
  • optionally, a cup of red wine (adds extra flavour)
  • seasoning - salt, pepper, oregano, bay leaf, basil
  1. Combine all ingredients in a slow-cooker, set on "low" heat, and let heat for six to eight hours. (Remove bay leaves before serving!)
  2. If using the wine, or if it's otherwise a bit runny, turn it to "high" heat and uncover for the last 30 minutes to 1 hour of cooking.
