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.
