Some recipes are truly special. Not only are they delicious and comforting (a must!), but they also have a way of bringing people together in a meaningful way. This Slow Cooker Chicken Cacciatore is one of those recipes. Its easy enough for a healthy weeknight dinner, special enough to serve for a dinner party, and is a recipe that, for me, is filled with happy memories.
I made this dish for new friends when we first moved to Milwaukee. We were new in town, struggling to meet people, and I reached out to two college acquaintances with the hope that (if I bribed them with a crock pot full of Italian food), they might entertain the possibility of being friends with me.
Five years later: were still gathering around the table together, this time as close friends.
Its not hard to bond over the cozy, richly flavored sauce and moist, tender chicken breast pieces in chicken cacciatore. The best part? It takes 15 minutes of prep work. Thank you, slow cooker!
Todays recipe, along with other healthy crock pot chicken recipes on my site like Crockpot Chicken and Potatoes, Crock Pot Mexican Casserole, Crock Pot Chicken and Rice, and Slow Cooker Greek Chicken (among many of my other slow cooker recipes), are a wonderful way to bring the people you care about around the table, while keeping your own prep work fuss free.
Whether you want to make this chicken cacciatore recipe for a delicious, family-friendly, easy weeknight dinner or as a main course for your next dinner party, I feel certain that you will be met with nothing but praise and requests for seconds.
