Crockpot Chicken Cacciatore

Crockpot Chicken Cacciatore Recipe served over pasta, on a white plate

This weekend, my Mother-in-Law invited us to a fun indoor garden exhibit. This would leave me away from the kitchen for most of the day, so I thought this would be the perfect time to try out a new Crockpot Chicken Cacciatore recipe I had been working on.

When we arrived home, the house smelled amazing! The girls and I couldn’t wait to try this yummy meal. (What about poor Darryl? Don’t worry. I made a vegetarian version for my hubby using his Morningstar Chikin Strips)

We all really loved this one, and I immediately filed it under  Family Favorites. The girls kept referring to this meal as the best spaghetti and meatballs.

Big D: “This is delish spaghetti and meatballs Mom!”
Me: ” It’s called Chicken Cacciatore.”
Big D: ” What a great name for REALLY GOOD spaghetti and meatballs.”
Great family dinner

(NOTE: The second time I made this, I only had chicken breasts on hand and that also tasted great! The vegetarian Morningstar Chikin Strips worked great for vegetarian option)

    1. Thanks! It is soooo good. The girls and I are eating it now for lunch 🙂 Nom Nom Nom

  1. I’m going to try this today, my husband Daryl (funny we’re Kori and Daryl also) has been craving a chicken and pasta dinner!!

    1. Hahaha! That is too funny Kori! Love it 🙂 Hope you both love the Chicken Cacciatore 🙂 XO

    2. I’m actually making this today…. looks so good. I’m cooking it for 4 hrs… the only thing I’m concerned with is the chicken…. put it in with other ingredients uncooked?

    3. Yep! I hope you love it 🙂

    4. Can I double this recipe? Serving 12.

    5. Yes you can 🙂 Just make sure you are using a 6 qt crockpot.

    1. Sweet! I hope you love it Kathryn! XO

  2. I’m making this tonight! I’m so excited, it looks great!

    1. I can’t wait to hear how you like it Brittany! XO

  3. This looks great! Put it in the crock this morning. I am a vegetarian and my family is not. How do you prep this dish for both? Do you just spoon some over the morning star strips or use a tiny crock? Just curious. Thanks.

    1. I actually have 2 crockpots just for this purpose… I can cook both at the same time. If you don’t have 2, I like your idea of spoon some of the sauce over the strips. If possible, you want to try to cook the strips in the sauce for a bit. So you could also put some in a small pot and simmer, covered for 15 minutes to get some of the flavor infused into the veggie meat.
