Chicken Cacciatore – 4 to 6 Servings
8 ounces yellow onion, peeled and cut vertically into ½-inch thick slices
1 red bell pepper, cored, seeded, cut lengthwise into ½-inch-thick slices
1 yellow bell pepper, cored, seeded, cut in ½-inch-thick slices lengthwise
3 garlic cloves, peeled
1 can (15 ounces) diced tomatoes, drained, juices discarded
2 tablespoons tomato paste
2 tablespoons white vermouth or other dry white wine
1 teaspoon oregano
¾ teaspoon basil
1 teaspoon kosher salt
¼ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
2 pounds bone-in, skinless chicken thighs
½ cup unbleached all-purpose flour
2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
4 ounces portobello mushrooms, cut into ½-inch-thick slices
1 bay leaf
Place the onions, peppers, garlic, drained tomatoes, tomato paste, vermouth, oregano, basil, salt, and pepper in a large bowl. Toss gently to combine. Trim chicken thighs of visible fat. Toss in flour to coat lightly – discard excess flour. Heat one tablespoon olive oil in a 12-inch Cuisinart® nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add half the chicken and cook over medium-high heat for 3 minutes on each side until brown. Transfer to a plate and repeat with the remaining chicken. Add the remaining tablespoon olive oil and cook the portobello mushrooms in a single layer until golden brown on each side, about 3 minutes per side. Add the browned portobello mushrooms to the vegetable mixture. Arrange half the chicken thighs in the ceramic pot of the Cuisinart® Slow Cooker. Top with half the vegetable mixture. Repeat layers. Tuck bay leaf into the center of the mixture. Cover and press the on/off button to turn the unit on. Set time to 8 hours and press Low; slow cooker will automatically switch to Warm when cooking time has elapsed. Remove and discard bay leaf before serving.
