Chicken Cacciatore

Crockpot cooking is one of the easiest ways to get a meal on for dinner that you don't have to spend hours and hours preparing. While you do have to get the recipe together, the crockpot does so much of the work. You can take all the credit for it. 

This crockpot meal is a win/win. While you can make this meal right away, you can also prepare it, put it in a storage container and freeze it for later. When you're ready take container out of the freezer and put it in the crockpot. Again the crockpot does the rest of the work. You'll get the credit for a delicious meal. 

Chicken Cacciatore

4 chicken thighs 

4 chicken legs 

1 onion 

1 red bell pepper

2 garlic cloves, minced

28 ounce can of diced tomatoes

2 Tablespoon dried parsley

salt and pepper to taste

Place all ingredients in a crockpot and cook on low for 6- 8 hours. This is delicious  served over cauliflower rice

Here is some tips to make this meal:     

  • Use chicken breast or chicken quarters in place of the thighs and legs. These can come directly from the freezer. 
  • Use frozen chopped onion and pepper.
  • Use 1 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder in place of the fresh garlic
  • This meal can also be prepared in the oven. Brown the chicken first in a pan with some coconut oil on all sides. Remove the chicken and sauté the onion and peppers until they are tender.  Add the rest of the ingredients to the onions and peppers, mix well. Transfer the chicken and the veggies to an oven safe pan and bake until chicken is cooked through.  

Enjoy this family favorite,

To your best health,
