Crock Pot Chicken Cacciatore

chicken cacciatoreCrock pots are a wonderful thing, but mine hides in the garage. I don’t have enough space in my kitchen to keep all my cooking equipment in there, so I put it out there to get it out of the way. And then I forget about it. But after reading through this recipe, I wanted to bring my crock pot back in the house. TODAY!

3 lbs chicken, cut up in pieces
1 large onion, thinly sliced
1 6-oz. can tomato paste
1 28-oz. can diced tomatoes
6 ounces sliced mushrooms
2 stalks celery, chopped
1 green bell pepper, finely chopped
2-4 garlic cloves, minced
1/2 cup Kalamata olives, chopped coarsely
2 teaspoons oregano
1 teaspoon dried basil
2 bay leaves
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup dry white wine
3 tablespoons olive oil
1/2 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes

Place onions in bottom of crock pot. Add chicken pieces. Stir all the other ingredients together and pour over chicken. Cook on low heat 7 to 9 hours or high heat for about 3 to 4 hours. Top with grated parmesan. Can be served over spaghetti squash if you’re avoiding starchy carbs.
