Chicken Cacciatore in a Slow Cooker

Rating: 4.5 stars 227
This is a very simple meal to make. You just throw everything in the crock pot and let it cook during the day. I like to serve this over thin spaghetti (especially garlic and herb thin spaghetti when I can find it).

Hunter Style Chicken Cacciatore

Traditional chicken cacciatore is brought to a new level with onions, peppers, mushrooms and red wine. This hunter-style version gives a heartiness and warmth that will satisfy any appetite!

Teresa's Hearty Chicken Cacciatore

The secret ingredient which makes this cacciatore stand out is pancetta, an Italian bacon. Once a specialty deli item, it is now readily available at most major supermarkets. The pancetta gives the sauce richness and body. I've also found that fresh basil leaves and baby portobello mushrooms make it my own. It is kid-friendly and fills the house with a wonderful aroma.

Homemade Chicken Cacciatore, Sicilian-Style

Rating: 4.5 stars 109
This recipe was shown to me by my Sicilian employer years ago in Lynchburg, VA. It is made from scratch with tomatoes, onions, peppers, wine, and seasonings. Do not cook chicken before adding to this recipe; it must all blend together to get this particular flavor. Leaving the skin on the chicken helps the flavors to blend together while cooking. You can remove the skin after cooking.

Rating: 4.5 stars 608

Many food names reflect various occupations or trades. 'Cacciatore' literally means 'hunter' in Italian, and this 'hunter style' dish makes good use of mushrooms (easily available to hunters trekking through forests!), onions tomatoes and herbs. If desired, serve over hot spaghetti noodles.
