A successful slow-cooker chicken cacciatore recipe required that the chicken, vegetables, and flavorings be browned on the stovetop before they were transferred to the slow cooker to simmer. We found that about four hours on the cooker’s lowest setting produced the best results. For our slow-cooker chicken cacciatore recipe, bone-in, skin-on thighs tasted best, though we did find it important to remove the skin once the pieces were browned (when they were left on, the broth turned greasy).

Serves 6

If cremini mushrooms (aka baby bellas) are unavailable, substitute portobello mushroom caps, cut into 1-inch pieces. Although we prefer the texture and flavor of chicken thighs here, you can substitute 6 bone-in, skin-on chicken breasts; the cooking time will remain the same, but the meat will be a bit drier. Serve with pasta or white rice.
