Crock Pot Chicken Cacciatore

1 jar spaghetti sauce
2 cans petite diced tomatoes (do not drain)
4 cloves garlic (minced or pushed through garlic press)
6 boneless skinless chicken breast halves
1 diced green pepper (optional)
10 diced mushrooms (optional)

- Arrange chicken breasts in bottom of crock pot
- Combine spaghetti sauce, diced tomatoes, garlic, green peppers and mushrooms and pour over chicken
- Cook on low heat for approximately 8 hours
- Use knife and fork to break up chicken and stir into sauce

- Cooking this too long in the crock pot will dry out the chicken.
- You can use a large metal spoon to 'cut' chicken and stir into sauce. Chicken will appear shredded.
- The green pepper and mushrooms are truly optional. They add some nice flavor for those who like a chunky sauce but are not necessary for this dish to be flavorful.
- Serve with pasta


  1. I add extra garlic to this all the time. The slow cooking really breaks down the meat. It's amazing.

  2. I made this the other night and my husband LOVED it. We had leftovers and used rice instead of pasta to change things up. It was good with the rice too.

  3. This was GREAT! Really good flavor. Next time I'll try draining one of the cans of diced tomatoes because it was a tad watery (I think Alec and I have a weird phobia of watery food or something ...). Lots of leftovers.


Thanks for leaving a comment. I love to see how these recipes work out for you and what modifications you make. Sorry to have to turn on the word verificatoin but this blog has been getting a LOT of spam!
