NJBC Eats: Karen's Chicken Cacciatore

By Karen Kelly, R.D. | October 11, 2019

With the weather cooling down and schedules filling up fast, crock pot meals can be the most convenient way to get a healthy meal on the table. There’s nothing quite like a warm, home-cooked dinner after a busy day and this healthy Chicken Cacciatore is the perfect dish!

This meal is a huge hit with my family. The veggies are soft, the chicken is tender and it’s packed with flavor! I love to enjoy this Chicken Cacciatore as is or serve it over cauliflower rice. The leftovers also make for a great meal prepped lunch. 


  • 4 bone-in chicken breasts
  • 1 onion, sliced
  • 1 red pepper, sliced
  • 1 small package of mushrooms, sliced
  • 1 clove garlic, diced
  • 2 tbsp tomato paste
  • 1/2 cup chicken broth
  • 1 tbsp Better than Bullion
  • 1 tsp basil
  • 1 tsp oregano
  • salt and pepper to taste


  1. Add all ingredients to crock pot- cook on low for 6 hours or high for 4 hours. (Times may vary depending on crock pot.) 
  2. Eat as is or serve over cauliflower rice, enjoy!
