I am not a big fan of the slow cooker for most things but in an effort to have Cacciatore on a weeknight I gave this a try. The best thing I can say is that the chicken was well cooked. The sauce, for all it's ingredients, was almost flavorless and seemed under seasoned. My conclusions are as follows: 1st and foremost, Chicken Cacciatore requires browned chicken. In this recipe the skin is removed to avoid all the fat that would render during the 7 hrs in the pot. The browning of skin gives a depth of flavor that is sorely missing. 2nd, I think the garlic, onions, peppers and mushrooms need to be sauted. Again, to get the flavors needed for a good Cacciatore. The garlic and onions especially suffer from the lack of being properly sauted. If I were to attempt this recipe again I would spend 15 minutes browning these items before putting them in the pot. I have used this method with other recipes and had results far superior to this recipe. I would not make this again without significant adjustments.

This was excellent. I had some misgivings when I put it in the crockpot this morning because it didn't seem like it had enough liquid to cover the chicken, so I actually added just 3 chicken thighs, about half of what the recipe called for. I used 1/2 C chicken broth, 1/2C white wine. I only used 1 onion. When I served it, it was very liquidy and I realized too late I had forgotten the cornstarch mixture, which I think must be essential. I also didn't brown the chicken, and I put it in the crockpot frozen. I cooked on low for 10 hours until I got home from work.

I was disappointed with this recipe. I followed the recipe exactly and the flavor came out rather bland. My husband and I agreed that it seemed to be missing several elements that would have added more flavor. The chicken did turn out very moist though, so the cooking method still seems good.
