{Dinner} Crockpot Chicken Cacciatore


I found this recipe on The Living Well blog. The ingredients sounded like they would go amazing together so I decided to make it. I have a crazy long list of recipes I want to try from blogs I follow. It is going to take me forever!


I threw the thawed chicken breast in the crockpot.
Chopped up green peppers and onions.
Put in some minced garlic.
Seasoned with basil, oregano, salt and pepper.


She used Vodka Sauce which I thought was a neat twist.
I dumped the vodka sauce and the whole can of tomato paste in the pot.


I mixed it all together after I took this picture.


I cooked it on low for six hours.

Review:

I noticed that my sauce ended up looking a little lot darker than hers. I probably was suppose to use half the can of tomato paste, oops.

All in all, the chicken came out super moist and the hubs loved it. I forgot to buy mushrooms and I know that it would have been perfect in this meal. I liked it but I think because I used too much tomato paste it kind of overpowered the meal and made it a tad bit sweet.

I will def. try it again because regardless of my mistakes it was delish.
