this was very tasty. i used 6 chicken breasts instead of a whole chicken. i put chicken over rice instead of pasta. i didn't have enough crushed tomatoes so i used pasta sauce. i will definitely make this again.

This recipe was beyond bland. It had no taste at all. I should have known to add some herbs/spices after reading the ingredients. How do you make an italian dish with ONLY parsley? Watch the time on the slow-cooker. I cooked the entire time (which is usually correct). The chicken was VERY dry and the peppers were mush.

After reading the reviews, I added basil, oregano, marjoram, salt, pepper to the recipe. I used a whole chicken cut into quarters and took the skin off and discarded the wings. I also added tomato puree to the crushed tomatoes. The chicken was very moist and fell off the bone. The sauce was delicious. I am making this again for a party. It feeds about 8 people.

The recipe "as is" was a little bland. I added oregano, basil, salt, pepper and tomato paste...Much better! Easy and tasty enough that I will certainly make this again!

This recipe was delicious, i added in some tomato paste, oregano, red pepper flakes & basil into the crushed tomatoes, mixed it all together then poured it over everything in the slow cooker, the chicken was so moist it fell off the bones. I used a white onion instead of the spanish onion & i used red, green & yellow peppers and added in summer squash slices also. Would use shell or ziti pasta next time, not rotini.

Mediocre, but a good quick fix recipe. Look at it as an alternative to jarred spaghetti sauce. I added red pepper and extra garlic plus a couple cups of water to make it more saucy. Had to skim quite a bit of grease off the top so if I make this again I will use skinless chicken. Dark meat came out perfect and the white was just a little dry. I might make this again just because it was so easy, but I'll probably keep searching for a better cacciatore recipe.

I've never heard of making chicken cacciatore with skin-on chicken pieces -63 grams of fat in the recipe is ridiculous. It doesn't add to the flavor of the dish, just makes it taste greasy. I used boneless, skinless chicken breasts. It was also bland, and didn't taste Italian. It needs oregano & basil at the very least.

Very bland, even with additional italian spices.
