Crockpot chicken recipes certainly make life easy – and tasty!
Traditional chicken cacciatore has several steps in the recipe and is probably not a work day dinner for someone with a busy life. But put it in a crock pot and presto, a delicious Italian recipe can be on the table any night of the week with little effort.
A Healthy Dinner Recipe
Most people love Italian recipes and this one is perfect for entertaining or a family dinner. Slow cooker chicken recipes make delicious easy dinner recipes.
This chicken cacciatore recipe has the taste of the original with the ease that crock pot recipes provide. Don’t you just love that? I certainly do.
It’s quite a healthy recipe too. Chicken, tomatoes, garlic and herbs all cooked together. Serve it over rice or pasta for a great dinner idea. Better yet, how about serving it over whole wheat pasta or brown rice? Extra fiber means extra nutrition. You can even serve chicken cacciatore over different grains. It would be wonderful over quinoa.
