Food on Friday - Slow Cooker Chicken Cacciatore

Before I get to this week's recipe, I want to give you an opportunity to have a recipe featured here. On the final Friday of each month, I will feature another blogger's recipe. If you are interested in being the featured blogger next Friday (the 28th), please email me at

Most days we spend the majority of our afternoon at soccer practices and ballet rehearsals. It doesn't leave a lot of time for me to cook so I do a lot of slow cooker meals. I got this slow cooker chicken cacciatore recipe from my Fix It & Forget It cookbook. I can remember my mom making chicken cacciatore when I was a child, but it wasn't in the slow cooker. She would stand over the skillet for a good long time getting it just right. I don't have that kind of time in the afternoons and evenings, so I was excited to find a slow cooker recipe to try.

2 onions, thinly sliced
4 boneless chicken breasts, cubed
3 garlic cloves, minced
1/4 tsp pepper
2 tsp dried oregano
1 tsp dried basil
1 bay leaf
2 15 oz can diced tomatoes
1 8 oz can tomato sauce
1 4 oz can sliced mushrooms

 Place onions in bottom of slow cooker. Add remaining ingredients. Cover and cook on low for 8 hours. Serve over hot spaghetti.
