Slow Cooker Chicken Cacciatore

A tasty tomato and chicken dish, which is great for those cold winter nights.


2 TBSP of olive oil

1 onion

1 tsp of Easy Garlic or two cloves of crushed garlic

455 g of chicken breast cubed

Salt and pepper

250 g of sliced fresh mushrooms

750 gram jar of pasta sauce (I used Dolmio)

1 green pepper, seeded and cubed


  1. Preheat the slow cooker
  2. Sauté the onion and garlic in the oil for 2-3 minutes.  Add the chicken.  Season with salt and pepper.  Cook until chicken is sealed.
  3. Add the mushrooms and cook for a few more minutes.  Until they soften a bit.
  4. Add the pasta sauce and green pepper.  Mix well.
  5. Transfer to slow cooker and cook on low for 7-9 hours.

Serve on a bed of pasta and sprinkle parmesan on top.  Caesar salad and garlic bread finish it off nicely.

  1. Just got a slow cooker for Christmas so looking for yummy recipes. I had one before but it didn’t require preheating but this one does so it’s thrown me a little off balance. I had just got that cooker so really I’m still a new newbie….That looks good.

    How many servings/people would you say that’s good for?

    1. It made loads….more than enough for hubby and I and froze the left-overs. So I’d say there was definitely enough for atleast 4 people.

      Mine says preheat as well. But I read that as just turn it on when you start prepping…it has 7 hours to cook so sure it gets to the right temp.
