Crockpot Chicken Cacciatore

Chicken Cacciatore is low in fat and sodium AND it is a crockpot meal! What more could you want?

This was a night of decorating 5 cake orders so we decided to have a crockpot dinner. It worked out perfect! The prep time was 15 minutes, I had it in on my lunch our and came home to a yummy scent permiating through the house.

You will need the following materials
 
3 lbs. bone-in chicken thighs, skin removed
14 oz. can diced tomatoes with Italian seasoning
6 oz. can tomato paste
1 cup chicken broth
1 onion, sliced
4 cloves garlic, minced
1 green bell pepper, chopped
1 cup sliced mushrooms
1/2 cup dry red wine
1 tsp. dried Italian seasoning
1/8 tsp. pepper
1/2 tsp. salt
2 Tbsp. cornstarch
3 Tbsp. water

Preparation:

Place all ingredients except cornstarch and water in 4-5 quart slow cooker. Cover and cook on low 6-8 hours until chicken is thoroughly cooked and tender. If you want a thicker sauce, combine cornstarch and water in small bowl and mix well. Stir into crockpot; cover and cook on low 15-20 minutes until thickened. Serve with hot cooked pasta, if desired. 6 servings
