What You Need

1
large  onion, halved, thinly sliced
2
lb.  boneless skinless chicken thighs
1
 bay leaf
2
cans  (6 oz. each) tomato paste
1/4
cup  fat-free reduced-sodium chicken broth
3
cloves  garlic, minced
1
tsp.  dried basil leaves
1
tsp.  dried oregano leaves
1/4
tsp.  black pepper
1
pkg.  (8 oz.) sliced fresh mushrooms
4
cups  rotini pasta, uncooked
1
cup  KRAFT Shredded Low-Moisture Part-Skim Mozzarella Cheese
1/3
cup  chopped fresh parsley

Make It

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.

Kraft Kitchens Tips

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.
Substitute
Substitute dry white wine for the chicken broth.
