I’ve got the perfect weeknight dish for the fall—Slow Cooker Chicken Cacciatore! This is the epitome of comfort food, and who doesn’t love to set it and forget it? Loaded with veggies and great served over simple whole-grain polenta or pasta, it’s the perfect one-dish meal. Oh, and bonus, if you’re a family of four like us, you’ll have leftovers for something quick and easy the next day! :)
What is Cacciatore Sauce Made of?
Typically, it’s made from vine-ripened tomatoes, olive oil, basil leaves, and naturally derived citric acid.
Some Substitution Options for Chicken Cacciatore:
- If you can only find bone-in chicken, that’ll work instead of boneless. You’ll just have to remove the bones before eating, of course!
- If someone in your family is not a fan of olives, it’s okay to leave them out or add them at the end individually.
- If you don’t want to cook with red wine, you can use broth instead.
I tried it last night and it was amazing.
What to Serve with Chicken Cacciatore?
I like to serve mine with either whole-grain noodles or polenta, but you could also try it over mashed potatoes or brown rice.

Thanks for this recipe. I tried it last night and it was amazing. Definitely hitting this site up more while locked down during covid times
I have some chicken thighs in the freezer just waiting for a recipe like this. I’ll cook it tomorrow and let you know how it goes, although I’m sure it will be delicious!
I am always on team slow cooker. It’s one of my favorite ways to cook. I love coming home to a hot meal at night after only taking a few minutes of preparation in the morning. I love this recipe too. It is so good. The only thing I do different is I use boneless skinless chicken breasts and my kids don’t like capers and olives added so I save them for a Greek salad. I also add a jar of spaghetti sauce or marinara. We put it over pasta and my whole family loves it.
Omg I’ve been looking for this recipe forever (without knowing it! Haha). My mum used to cook something similar when I was a kid and this tastes as good if not better! You guys made my stomach very happy with this Chicken Cacciatore, thanks!!
It was Delicious.
Made this for dinner tonight. It was super easy and so tasty!
