How to Make Crockpot Chicken Cacciatore w/ Pinot Noir Tomato Sauce over Farfalle Pasta


  1. Place all ingredients in slow cooker in no particular order except pasta, cornstarch, water and sugar. Cover and cook on low 6-8 hours (chicken will fall apart). It will not look like alot of liquid at first, but after cooking for a few hours, the juices from the chicken will change that. Don't add more liquid than the recipe calls for.

    2 hours before serving add sugar and stir.

    20 minutes before serving, stir in well blended cornstarch/water mixture. Make pasta according to directions on package.

    Place a few pieces of chicken on a bed of pasta, and spoon desired amount of sauce over chicken and pasta. Sprinkle w/ Fresh Parmesan and enjoy!

    This dish is very low in fat and sodium, and can be adjusted by using less salt, brown rice or whole grain pasta.
