Crockpot Chicken Cacciatore

Dish: Entrees
Dish Type: Meats
Cooking Method: Crockpot
Diet: Low-calorie
Difficulty: 1 / 10
Servings: 4
Prep Time: 10-15 min
Cook Time: 4-8 hours

  • 8 - chicken thighs, skins removed
  • 1 & 1/2 cups - marinara sauce
  • 1/2 cup - sliced onion
  • 1/4 cup - tomato paste
  • 1/2 tsp - dried rosemary or whatever dried herbs you prefer
  • 1/2 tsp - salt
  • 1 tbsp - red wine vinegar

Combine all ingredients - except the chicken & red wine vinegar - in the crockpot.  (Note: You can substitute 1/4 cup of red wine instead of red wine vinegar. If so, add it now).   
In a skillet, brown both sides of the chicken thighs, and add them to the slow cooker.  Toss to coat.
Cook 2.5 to 3.5 hours on HIGH, or 5-8 hours on LOW.
Just before serving, add the red wine vinegar. 

Serves 4. About 252 calories per serving.


Delicious & easy!!! I got this recipe from a health magazine (with a few minor changes). You can add sliced cubanella peppers if you choose, or top with parsley before serving.

Serve solo, or over pasta, polenta, or - my personal choice - white rice.
