Vintage recipe for chicken cacciatore made in the slow cooker! Serve this on a bed of rice!
I also have a pork cacciatore recipe you may like too! Whether you use chicken or pork, you will enjoy this!
Hello! I have the vintage slow cooker recipe of the month here today. This chicken cacciatore recipe is something my mom made often growing up. She did not own a slow cooker though, I converted this recipe to fit my style of cooking in the slow cooker.
Below you will see the original recipe my mom owned. Years ago she had her tattered magazine ad recipe laminated, and she gave it to me. I am glad to have it so I can recreate the recipe she made for my family growing up.
I made a few small changes to the recipe. I love boneless skinless chicken thighs, they don’t need browning and they don’t make sauces greasy as skin-on chicken does. I also added bell pepper, I remember my mom always had that in her sauce.
Below is what the dish looks like after being cooked on high for 4 hours. Though I do think 8 hours on low will do fine as well.
I only serve this over rice, but you can serve on noodles. Rice soaks up the sauce nicely.
