Crockpot Chicken Cacciatore

  • - chicken (any af your favorite pieces is fine - breast, leg, thigh, or a combination)
  • - 14 oz. can of stewed tomatoes
  • - wine (red or white)
  • - onions (sliced thin or in chunks)
  • - mushrooms (sliced)
  • - zucchini (cubed or sliced)
Grill chicken first so that it has some color. Does not need to be cooked through. Used chicken with skin on, but can do without as well. Throw in the veggies, the tomatoes and as much of the wine as you would like (used about 1/2 to 3/4 of a cup). Place chicken in crockpot, spoon some of the veggies and juices on top and around the chicken and cook on low for 7 to 9 hours. Absolutely delicious and the meat falls off the bone (literally). Most cacciatore recipes only call for mushrooms and onions, but I found the zucchini to be one of the best additions to this.

Come on in for a nice cup of coffee and a chat about my weight loss journey as well as all the healthy recipes I have found, including WW points and/or nutritional information if available. I am eating a vegetarian diet and concentrating on getting healthy and hopefully weight loss will follow. Thank to all my readers for their ongoing support.
