    Savory Slow-Cooked Chicken Cacciatore

    Very good. I used 2 cans 14.5 oz tomatoes, 1 can tomato sauce and 1 can of tomato paste. I used 4 Knorr garlic cubes and 1 knorr chicken cube in 1 1/2 cups hots water. Did not use the mushrooms as I did not have them on hand. I used frozen diced onion with green and red peppers. I used oregano and basil and always a pinch or two of sugar. While browning the chicken I put the sauce ingredients in the cooker. I cooked for approximatley 3 1/2 hours. Then lifted the lid and added spaghetti noodles(broken in half). I stirred them for a minute or so to keep from sticking togehter. I put the lid back on and cooked on high for about 30 minutes. The sauce was thick from the starch of the noodles, so therefore, I eliminated the corn starch. Absolutely Italian flavor and delicious. This is a keeper and I would serve this for dinner to friends and family with a "smile of confidence".

    I use McCormick Italian Seasoning and a bit of Red Pepper Flakes!!! My family loves it over Bow Ties or Fettucini.

    It smelled wonderful but it seemed to be missing something, a spice maybe?

    Still tasted like canned tomatoes over pasta. Seemed to be missing a spice?
