This Chicken Cacciatore recipe is one of my favorite dinners. If you have a crock pot, you need to try this! It is a little bit of work getting everything ready for the crock pot, but once that is done you put everything in the crock pot and let it sit during the day and when you are ready to have dinner it is all set and waiting for you to enjoy. All you need to do is boil a little water for some pasta and your dinner is served.
