That’s how I’d best describe this slow cooker meal.
It takes minutes to throw together.
Slice the peppers. Then slice the onions.
Add chicken to slow cooker. Season.
Top with peppers and onions.
Douse with crushed tomatoes.
Slow cook the day away.
“Fancy recipes” of chicken cacciatore call for mushrooms and cooking wine, but I left those out. 🙂
Be generous with the seasoning.
1 each – green bell pepper, red bell pepper, small white onion.
28 oz. can crushed tomatoes.
Season away, be generous.
This is one of those meals that I’ll make on a day when I know we’ll be at the pool all afternoon and I need a delicious meal to serve the boys. Hope you enjoy this delightful summer slow cooker meal!
