     Chicken Cacciatore

Category   Entrees - Maindishes
Sub Category   None
Servings   4 - 6
Preptime   30 minutes

1 whole cut up chicken
2 - 28 oz cans crushed tomatoes
4 oz fresh mushrooms cut in half
1 lg pepper any color cut into lengthwise slices 1/2 in wide
1 medium yellow onion sliced lengthwise 1/2 in wide
4 - cloves garlic chopped
1/4 tsp dried basil
1/4 tsp dried oregano
1/4 tsp dried thyme
1/4 tsp dried rosmary
or 1 tsp dried Italian seasoning
garlic powder
black pepper
olive oil as required

Lightly season the chicken pieces with black pepper and garlic powder. Using a cast iron fry pan brown the cut-up chicken pieces in olive oil on both sides. In a small pan sauté the garlic in olive oil until translucent.
Using a 5-quart crockpot pour in the 2 cans of crushed tomatoes along with the dried herbs. Set the heat to high. Add the garlic and olive oil to the pot and stir. Add the remaining prepared ingredients to the pot and stir again.
Place the browned chicken pieces in the pot and push down so that all of it is covered with the sauce. Cook for 6 hours on low removing the cover for the final hour. This will allow the sauce to thicken a bit. Serve with a side of your favorite pasta covered with the cacciatore sauce.
This is the crockpot version of my mom's cacciatore recipe. WARINING - this is the real thing! Unlike the chunks of browned chicken breast drizzled with marinara sauce that you would get in a restaurant in my part of the country. ENJOY!
