Slow, Healthy, Italian, & Tasty = A Great Acronym


I found this recipe on Weight Watchers website while I was searching for some slow cooker chicken recipes.  If I can get my act together I am going to try this out tonight.


Slow Cooker Chicken Cacciatore

  • 1 lb boneless/skinless chicken thighs or breasts, cut into bite size pieces
  • 1 cup sliced mushrooms
  • 1 green bell pepper cut into slices
  • 1 cup chopped onions
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1 Tbsp canned tomato paste
  • 14.5 oz can crushed tomatoes, fire roasted
  • 1/4 cup dry red wine
  • 3/4 tsp dried oregano
  • 3/4 tsp salt, divided
  • 1/4 tsp black pepper



Place chicken pieces in a 3-5 qt. slow cooker.  Add mushrooms, green pepper, onions, garlic, tomato paste, tomatoes (with juice), wine, oregano, 1/2 tsp salt, and black pepper.


Cover and cook on high for 5-6 hours or on low for 6-8 hours.  Taste and add remaining salt if needed.  You can serve over whole wheat penne or angel hair.

  1. I didn’t care for the flavor of this at all. Will ate 2 helpings, but I was fine with stopping after 1 and that is unusual……..
