I use a lot of chicken for our dinner recipes. My kids like chicken and it’s a great way to encourage them to try different types of food. My daughter also loves pasta so it only made sense to try Crock Pot Chicken Cacciatore when I was pulling together more slow cooker recipes to make now that baseball has started again.
You can serve it over pasta like I usually do or over rice. Spaghetti squash would be good too. You can even do CrockPot Chicken Cacciatore with potatoes! I like recipes that have some versatility and this one works well for that!
CROCK POT CHICKEN CACCIATORE
I make this easy chicken cacciatore with jar sauce because it’s quick and simple. I do like to add some extra seasonings to it for flavor, but they’re ones that I have in my kitchen most of the time so the ingredient list for this recipe is actually pretty small.
So get your favorite sauce and toss everything in the slow cooker. For this recipe, I don’t cook our pasta in the slow cooker. I cook it on the stovetop and then serve it with the Italian chicken from the Crock Pot.
You’ll have a great family dinner ready for you, no matter how busy your night is!
- 4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
- ½ teaspoon parsley
- ½ teaspoon oregano
- ½ teaspoon garlic powder
- ¼ teaspoon black pepper
- 2 jars spaghetti sauce
- 1 bag frozen bell pepper and onion mix
- Optional additional vegetables: frozen carrots or frozen mushrooms
- Serve over: pasta, rice, spaghetti squash, potatoes
If you need a slow cooker, I find that my 6 QT is the one I use the most. Here are a few things I recommend if you’re going to be doing a lot of cooking in your Crockpot:
- Crock-Pot 6-Quart Cook & Carry
- Slow Cooker Liners
- Microwave Pasta Cooker (if you want to serve over pasta, this is a quick option!)
CROCKPOT CHICKEN CACCIATORE RECIPE
It’s easy to prep your slow cooker Italian chicken.
Place chicken breasts in the pot of the Crock Pot and season with parsley, oregano, garlic powder, and black pepper.
Pour bag of peppers and onions over the top of the chicken. Add additional vegetables if desired.
Add both jars of spaghetti sauce over the top of the chicken and pepper mixture.
Cook on LOW for four hours or HIGH for two hours.
Serve over pasta.
If you like shredded chicken instead of full chicken breasts, take the chicken out of the Crockpot after cooking and shred using a fork. Then add the chicken back to the slow cooker and mix with the sauce before serving.
