Here’s the perfect Italian meal to serve company. While simmering, it frees you up to visit with your guests and always receives rave reviews! I like to serve it with hot cooked pasta, a tossed salad and a dry red wine. Mangia! —Martha Schirmacher, Sterling Heights, Michigan

MY REVIEW

Very good. I love chicken cacciatore. This is a great way to make it, keeps the stovetop and kitchen cool. Great any time but think it would be really nice to make in the Summer. Thanks for sharing.

I cut this down to only make 2 servings and made it in our 1 quart crockpot today. I used chicken breasts to make it lighter. The meat just feel apart. My husband really enjoyed it. This dish pairs really well with brown rice.

MY REVIEW

The sauce was very tasty; my husband thought the chicken (I used chicken breasts cut in half) was pretty bland. It is a very diabetic-friendly recipe. I cut down on the salt because I didn't use sodium-reduced chicken broth and found that the chicken itself needed a little salt. Instead of serving this over pasta, as the recipe creator did, I served it over Zucchini Fritters, also a Taste of Home recipe. That kept the carb count down and it was a nice combo.

Can not understand why certain ingredients go into a dish while chicken goes into crock pot. I am confused?
