Easy Crockpot Chicken Cacciatore

I love when I come home from work and smell an amazing dinner cooking.  At that moment, all is right in the universe!  Even though I’m tired and starving I don’t have to scramble and figure out dinner!   And it’s all thanks to that amazing kitchen gaget………the Crock Pot!

This recipe in particular smells incredible while it’s cooking away.  Easy Crock Pot Chicken Cacciatore. It’s really a delicious  Americanized version of Chicken Cacciatore and is loaded with peppers and onions.  The wine gives it some nice depth of flavor and the sugar takes care of the acidity of the canned tomatoes.  The sauce gets a little watery because of all the veggies so give it a good stir before you serve it.  This makes a nice week night meal. I like it served over a little rice or pasta and a generous dash a Parmesan cheese. Easy Crockpot Chicken Cacciatore
