Chicken alla Cacciatore

Tuesday, March 3, 2009

The caccia in cacciatore means "hunt". So the name of this dish loosely translates into hunter's-style chicken. Vegetables are used to flavor the chicken and the crock-pot method makes the meat tender. You can also include olives or mushrooms to this recipe. This dish has a delicious sauce but it tends to be thin so it is best complimented by an angel hair pasta or rice. These combinations will allow you to enjoy the sauce without be overpowered by noodles.

Serves: 4
Start to Finish: 7 1/2 hours (30 minutes prep time + 7 hours in slow cooker)
