Quick and easy with delicious results. I tend to use boneless skinless chicken breasts and I cut them into large chunks. However, the recipe is also great with thighs. Bone-in is also an option. I tend not to use bone-in because there are members in my family who don't like to deal with the bones.

This Crock Pot chicken cacciatore is a keeper! Wine adds a depth of flavor. The fresh veggies and Italian seasoning give this dish lots of flavor too. The chicken soaks up all the juices from the vegetables. We used boneless, skinless chicken thighs and they were fall-apart tender. This is made even better by topping with a little grated Parmesan cheese. If cooking for a family, we would recommend doubling the recipe. People will definitely be asking for seconds (maybe thirds!).
