I agree with Patricia91248's rating on 12/12/06 with eliminating the browning of the chicken in italian dressing. We could not taste it in the final dish and the chicken is thoroughly cooked after 6-8 hours slow cooking. I substituted using small cut up pieces of boneless chicken breast. I also did not have any red peppers, so I used only the green peppers I had . This is a very filling dish and after feeding totally 4 adults I still froze 3 pints (not including rice). We cooked both rice and pasta and found rice to be the very best with it. I will be making this again for my family, they all liked it very much and it definitely is a budget stretcher.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love this recipe! I love this recipe! Every time I make chicken it seems to turn out terrible, so I usually stick to my boneless skinless chicken breasts. But these thighs and drumsticks are something that I wouldn't be at all ashamed to serve to some dinner guests. They were very tasty. Do note, however, that the chicken falls off the bone VERY easily. When transporting drumsticks from the slow cooker to the plate they sometimes fell apart. I enjoyed this, as I just easily threw out the bones and had a mess of yummy chicken on my plate, but others may prefer their chicken to remain more intact. If that is the case I may consider staying on the low end of the cooking time.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This recipe really hit the spot. This recipe really hit the spot. I did make some variations bacause upon looking at the recipe, I knew it would be too bland for my taste. I used only 2 pounds boneless skinless chicken thighs. I also used already seasoned crushed tomatoes but still added the thyme. I used 3 cloves of garlic and omitted the mushrooms. I left my peppers in pretty big chunks because I didn't want them to break apart. I ate it over rice and my husband at it over egg noodles. Served it with garlic bread. I will be making this again in a couple of weeks because my sister will love it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I thought the dish was very good, but I would make some alterations the next time I make it. I thought the dish was very good, but I would make some alterations the next time I make it. I would most definitely use skinless chicken as chicken with skin produces too much grease (I'd skip the browning step as this doesn't seem to do much). I like garlic so I would add more, and definitely add the vegetables toward the end of the cooking time. I thought the chicken was flavorful, but this is not a salty dish so if you like a more salty flavor you will need to add more seasoning. I added tomato paste to thicken the sauce since it was so greasy (I used chicken with skin).

Rated 5 out of 5 by from One of the best recipes I've ever made! One of the best recipes I've ever made! My husband just loves this! It was simple, easy and quick. I too followed others advice and this is what I changed...I used boneless, skinless chicken breasts ( I also didn't bother to pre-cook the chicken), I used mushrooms from a jar, 1 can diced tomato and 1 small can tomato paste (I put the Italian dressing in with this). I also waited until the last hour of so to throw in the peppers, mushrooms and some zucchinis! Instead of over rice, I put mine over pasta. I'm adding this to my regular recipe list!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from tastyyyyy This recipe is so delicious, I've tried it with chicken thighs and drumsticks and also chicken breasts. They all taste excellent but the chicken breast is by far my favourite of the 3. With the other 2 options the meat doesn't stay on the bones so you may find some just becomes a little bit more complicated to go through the bones. Chicken breasts are just easier in my opinion. It doesn't do anything to the taste. So if you have more patience than me...its just a question of preference and patience !! I highly recommend this simply but very yummy recipe to everyone.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from We had this tonight for dinner. We had this tonight for dinner. I did make changes to it for more flavor because previous posts said this was bland. I used 1 can of garlic, basil oregano diced tomatoes and 1/2 can southwest blend diced tomatoes (we like alot of sauce). Instead of heating the dressing to brown the chicken i poured the dressing over the chicken, added black pepper and some salt and then browned in pan. I also added a little garlic powder, fresh ground black pepper and a little salt to the tomato mixture. Also i used 3 cloves of garlic instead of 1 and no it wasnt too garlicy with all the extra garlic. The sauce was not as thick as i would have liked but it was very tasty and couldnt be easier to make. I will definitely make this again with my additions.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Been meaning to try chicken cacciatore for a while now. Been meaning to try chicken cacciatore for a while now. This was pretty darn good, & hubby loved it. Changes I made to the recipe: Tuscan Italian dressing, as that is what I had on hand. Boneless, skinless thighs. Italian style crushed tomatoes, almost doubling the amount called for in the recipe. Used Italian seasoning. I added the mushrooms & peppers, along with one chopped zuchini 1.5 hours before serving (I live at high altitude so the extra time is needed). Served over angel hair pasta. .... My husband tried it with rice, as well as pasta, and says it tastes much better with pasta. My family is not big on green peppers, so will try substituting yellow or orange next time. Very simple and easy.
