Italian Chicken Recipe For The Slow-Cooker

So quick and easy to prepare, this Crockpot Chicken Cacciatore Recipe is a delicious chicken-in-red-wine recipe. I'm a sucker for Italian food. I love pizza and pasta but unfortunately I won't be getting to a side-cafe in Milan anytime soon so Italian recipes are my next best option.

A crock pot is just the best way to relieve the stress of slaving in the kitchen and still leaving you feeling that you made a tasty meal for your hungry guests or family.

A popular, classic Italian dish, Cacciatore is a meal that is prepared hunter-style with onions, mushrooms, tomatoes, herbs and wine. Using your crock pot will keep it a low fat chicken recipe but it isn't low on taste.
The dark meat is the best meat to use but any cut will do. This recipe suggests chicken breast pieces.

If you have a bit of spare time, you can lightly flour the chicken pieces and brown them in a frying pan before placing them in your slow cooker. This will give the cacciatore a better flavour. Below the slow cooker recipe there is a stove top Chicken Cacciatore Recipe.
