Recipe

It’s been awhile since I have shared a slow cooker recipe. It’s not that I haven’t been using my slow cooker, but I have just been happily cooking some of my favorite old recipes. However this past week I was finally inspired to whip up something new when a friend requested a lighter version of Chicken Cacciatore that they could freeze for a friend with a baby on the way. This simple dish is packed with delicious Italian flavors and made special with capers and black olives. It tastes great with pasta, rice, spaghetti squash, or it’s terrific tucked in sandwiches with some melted cheese.
