How to Make Slow Cooker Chicken Cacciatore (Hunter's Stew)

Step-by-Step

  1. Place sliced onions and bell peppers on the bottom of the slow cooker. Sprinkle with seasonings.

    Slice chicken into strips or cut into large dices or leave whole as you choose. I like to leave my pieces whole.
  2. Place chicken on top of the onions and peppers.

    Stir together remaining ingredients and pour over chicken. (I normally use the McCormick's brown gravy mix.)
  3. Cook on low 7-9 hours or high 3-4 hours. Sprinkle with grated parmesan if desired and serve over pasta or rice, with a salad on the side and crusty french bread.
