I made a delicious Chicken Cacciatore in the Slow Cooker. The chicken comes out tender and flavorful, and the sauce is perfect over pasta and rice. A crockpot winner.
Ingredients
  • 4 chicken drumsticks
  • 2 chicken breasts with skin and backbone, halved crosswise
  • 2 teaspoons salt, plus more to taste
  • 1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper, plus more to taste
  • ½ cup all purpose flour, for dredging
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 large red bell pepper, chopped
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 3 garlic cloves, finely chopped
  • ¾ cup dry white wine
  • 1 ( 28-ounce) can diced san marzano tomatoes with juice
  • ¾ cup reduced-sodium chicken broth
  • 3 tablespoons drained capers
  • 1½ teaspoons dried oregano
  • ¼ cup coarsely chopped fresh basil leaves
  • ⅛ tsp red pepper flakes
Instructions
  1. Sprinkle the chicken pieces with 1 teaspoon of each salt and pepper. Dredge the chicken pieces in the flour to coat lightly.
  2. In a large heavy saute pan, heat the oil over a medium-high flame. Add the chicken pieces to the pan and saute just until brown, about 5 minutes per side. If all the chicken does not fit in the pan, saute it in 2 batches. Transfer the chicken to a plate and set aside.
  3. Add to crockpot the bell pepper, onion and garlic. Add the wine, Add the tomatoes with their juice, Add broth, capers and oregano and red pepper flakes. Return the chicken pieces to the pan and coat them in the sauce.
  4. Turn crockpot on low for 8 hours.
  5. Add the bell pepper, onion and garlic to the same pan and saute over medium heat until the onion is tender, about 5 minutes. Season with salt and pepper. Add the wine and simmer until reduced by half, about 3 minutes. Add the tomatoes with their juice, broth, capers and oregano. Return the chicken pieces to the pan and turn them to coat in the sauce. Bring the sauce to a simmer. Continue simmering over medium-low heat until the chicken is just cooked through, about 30 minutes for the breast pieces, and 20 minutes for the thighs.
  6. Using tongs, transfer the chicken to a platter. If necessary, boil the sauce until it thickens slightly, about 3 minutes. Spoon off any excess fat from atop the sauce. Spoon the sauce over the chicken, then sprinkle with the basil and serve.
