I added cooked rice to the pot, and it was great.
We tried this last week for the first time, and everyone loved it. It's a keeper!
A simple and easy recipe. The sauce is very flavorful and the chicken thighs turn out moist and fall-apart tender every time!
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.
