The Chicken Cacciatore is for my opinion one of the best chicken stews I have tried and repeatedly eaten and cooked in my career. The blend of your vegetables, chicken, tomatoes and wine make it have that really great taste especially after you add the aromatics and herbs which makes truly and authentic Italian Dish.
The Chicken Cacciatore is a very humble and simple dish which is of course best eaten when cooked by someone’s Italian grandmother. It is one of those dishes where you will surely feel at home and have that sense of coziness wherever you may be.
So enjoy this great recipe of mine which I have prepared in the Crockpot or Slowcooker which makes the dish entirely tender and flavorful. Imagine cooking it for a couple of hours in low heat, all the flavors infuse each other and lock inside that precious Slowcooker.
