  1. Nutritional value is for Chicken Cacciatore alone.
  2. We use boneless skinless chicken thighs for this recipe, traditionally from my friend they use legs, you could also use chicken breasts if needed.
  3. You can easily double this recipe, just use a larger 8 quart slow cooker.
  4. This can be frozen, see my tips above on how to do that.
  5. You can serve this with pasta, potatoes or rice.
  6. Red wine is needed in this recipe, but I have subbed balsamic vinegar before so you cold try that.
  7. You can cook this on other low or high, all depends on the time you have and when you want it finished.
