Chicken cacciatorre~ Slow Cooker

Since the holiday season is here, you will needs lots of easy and healthy recipes to get you and your families fed during this time.
Chicken Cacciatorre {Hunter's Chicken}

Rustic, yet not difficult or too rich.
3-4 lbs. boneless breasts and/or thighs
1 large onion, thinly sliced
3 cloves garlic, crushed
1/2 teaspoon each basil and oregano
1 (6 oz.) can tomato paste
fresh mushrooms, sliced
2 bay leaves
1 large can of crushed tomatoes OR diced...whatever your preference
salt and pepper to taste
2 cups red wine
Parmesan cheese, for sprinkling before serving

Place sliced onions on bottom of crock pot. Add chicken.

Stir together remaining ingredients and pour over chicken.

Cook on low 7-9 hours or high 3-4 hours. Serve over pasta, with a salad on the side.

*I used bone in one time--TOO many small bones--because it all fell apart, there were so many tiny bones I would just be on the safe side and do boneless thighs/breasts*

Delicious taste, you don't even need pasta, 

but if you married an Italian, he'll probably want spaghetti!
