Slow Cooking: Chicken Cacciatore

It was a gorgeous fall day here today -- the air was crisp the sun was bright and while the leaves are just starting to turn here, there was a slight crunch underfoot as we strolled down the sidewalk.

Today's slow cooker recipe comes from Food Network Magazine -- with a few tweaks: "Slow-Cooker Chicken Cacciatore," just like Grandma used to make. Mushrooms, tomatoes, wine, basil, garlic, hot peppers, chicken thighs -- you can't really go wrong.
Crock full of flavor!
If you want to make your own batch, you can find the recipe here. Chris and I've tweaked a bit by adding some diced hot cherry peppers (and maybe a pinch of bacon salt when no one's looking) to the mix, but otherwise, it's straight from the book. Speaking of books, it was the perfect day to grab one and while away the afternoon.

Seven hours later, the house smells welcoming and tummies are ready to be filled. Served over pasta, rice, couscous or just with a hunk of crusty bread, it's a satisfying way to celebrate the arrival of another fall evening.

Have a delicious one!
