  • Place onions in slow cooker; top with chicken and bay leaf. Mix next 6 ingredients in medium bowl. Add mushrooms; stir to evenly coat. Spoon over chicken; cover with lid.
  • Cook on LOW 7 to 9 hours (or on HIGH 4 to 5 hours). About 15 min. before ready to serve, cook pasta as directed on package, omitting salt.
  • Drain pasta. Remove bay leaf from chicken mixture; discard. Spoon chicken mixture over pasta; top with cheese and parsley.

Note from the Kraft Kitchens

This version of cacciatore is based on a classic recipe using tomato paste, so the flavor of the sauce is more strongly tomato and less like a pasta sauce. If you prefer a spicier sauce, increase the basil, oregano and pepper – and be sure they are within their shelf life so that you are getting their full flavor. Substituting dry white wine for the broth enhances the sauce flavor nicely, too.

Special Extra

For easy cleanup, line slow cooker with plastic liner bag before filling with ingredients and cooking as directed.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from I made up my mind to attempt this recipe due to its ease before reading the reviews. I made up my mind to attempt this recipe due to its ease before reading the reviews. Since my family hates bland food, I doubled the spices as well as salted and peppered the chicken before putting in the slow cooker. I also used five very large garlic cloves. I used a half a cup of broth because I was afraid that it wouldn't be juicy enough with the two cans of paste. I happened to have carrots on hand so I cut up four and mixed them in with the onions on the bottom of the crock pot. It came out pretty good on an unseasonably chilly May day. I also did not trim any bits of fat or skin off the supposedly skinless chicken thighs. I like having enough veggies in with my crock pot dishes so there are no other veggie sides like salads. I can't beat how easy this was!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I use this recipe as a base to my chicken cacciatore. I use this recipe as a base to my chicken cacciatore. I use dry white wine in place of chicken broth. I double the mushrooms, add more garlic and onion, add just one green pepper, a 12 oz can of tomato paste and a can of diced tomatoes. I also use about 3 lbs of b/s chicken thigh. Also, I am not a big fan of rotini, so I use fettucine instead. My family loves this version of cacciatore.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Very bland, so disappointed; added garlic salt and some hot sauce to get through it. Very bland, so disappointed; added garlic salt and some hot sauce to get through it. While I appreciated the simplicity of the recipe, it just didn't work. Maybe consider adding crushed red pepper or even balsamic to add spice or acidity.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from We tried this tonight and it was very very bland. We tried this tonight and it was very very bland. It needs acid, salt, more spices, more vegetables, and the sauce is too thick to serve with pasta. I was afraid it was an error in my cooking but its a faulty recipe.
