Slow Cooker Chicken Cacciatore – an easy crockpot meal loaded with tender chicken, tomatoes, bell peppers, kale, carrots and sliced mushrooms. Hearty, comforting and bursting with flavor.
Hey everyone! Kelly here from Life Made Sweeter back again to share another slow cooker dinner recipe! With the cooler evenings we are starting to see, we’ve been craving all kinds of comfort food.
Chicken Cacciatore is a classic Italian dish that is just perfect for this time of year. Ever since visiting Italy a few years ago, we love trying to recreate the delicious flavors of the meals we had while we were there.
I love making this hearty and rustic dish in the slow cooker on busy school nights. You just toss everything into the pot and set and forget it. Cooking it low and slow helps to create that amazing rich and flavorful broth.
But if you have some extra time, sear the chicken in a large skillet before placing in the slow cooker. It’s an extra step but it gives the chicken that extra layer of flavor.
This slow cooker chicken cacciatore is also loaded with a ton of healthy vegetables like bell peppers, carrots, diced tomatoes, kale, mushrooms, onions and Kalamata olives.
Serve this with your favorite sides or over some thick noodles, zoodles, or rice to soak up that amazing sauce.
