Paleo Crockpot Chicken Cacciatore Recipe
One pot dishes are the way to go for busy people! This is coming from a truly busy person! You can use a whole chicken, breasts or thighs, a saut̩ pan or a slow cooker, and a complicated ingredients list or just a few ingredients.
Prep Time: 15 Minutes
Cook Time: 6 Hours
Personally, I prefer a short ingredients list and to use a slow cooker, because I like to just throw everything in the pot and come back to a perfectly cooked meal in six or eight hours. I highly recommend choosing an organic and free range chicken rather than one factory farmed. There are some nationally known brands out there that use the word "natural" and it means NOTHING. Do your do diligence for your health and your loved one's health.
