Use your favourite brand of pasta sauce or tinned chopped tomatoes. Add chicken, green peppers, onion, garlic and mushrooms and you're done! The slow cooker does the rest. Serve with roast potatoes, mash, rice or pasta.

A wonderful Italian neighbour showed me how to make this recipe after I commented on how good it made the neighbourhood smell when she had her windows open whilst she made it. Cacciatore refers to food prepared 'hunter-style,' with mushrooms, onions, tomatoes, various herbs and sometimes wine. I found adding cheese gave it something special, it also made it mine.

A warming, substantial dinner if served with mash, polenta or pasta. It smells delicious as it's simmering with fresh herbs and white wine.

'Cacciatore' literally means 'hunter' in Italian, and this 'hunter style' dish makes good use of mushrooms (easily available to hunters trekking through forests!), onions tomatoes and herbs. If desired, serve over spaghetti.

This is such a simple way to cook chicken cacciatore. This recipe calls for chicken breasts but you can use any or a mixture of chicken cuts. The slow cooker was designed for recipes exactly like this!

A 'back to basics' version of the classic chicken cacciatore. Chicken simmered with garlic, onion, green pepper, tomatoes, beans and oregano. This recipe can easily be doubled. Serve over pasta or rice, if desired.

This tasty dish is incredibly easy to make. All of the ingredients are placed into a pan and simmered until the chicken is tender. Serve as is or with rice or pasta.

This recipe was shown to me by a true Sicilian. It is made from scratch with tomatoes, onions, peppers, wine and seasonings. Do not cook chicken before adding to this recipe; it must all blend together to get this particular flavour. Leaving the skin on the chicken helps the flavours develop while cooking. You can remove the skin after cooking.

This balsamic infused chicken cacciatore is fast and delicious, and needs no tomatoes to stand on its own.
