Slow Cooker Chicken Cacciatore

Don't be put off by the number of ingredients, as this is a super simple dish to prepare.  It's a good way to use your bone-in chicken, even leg quarters, though I think you could use boneless chicken breasts too, if you wish.  This chicken in a sweet tomato sauce over egg noodles got me major props with the mother-in-law, and you really can't have too many of those!

Slow Cooker Chicken Cacciatore

1 onion, thinly sliced
3-4 lbs. bone-in chicken thighs (I do remove the skin)
2 cans tomato paste
2 cans sliced mushrooms
1 green pepper, chopped
2-4 cloves minced garlic
2 tsp. oregano
1 tsp. sweet paprika
1 tsp. basil
1/2 tsp. celery powder
2 Tbsp. brown sugar
1 tsp. salt
1/2 c. chicken broth
2 Tbsp. olive oil
1 tsp. crushed red pepper

1.  Place onion in the bottom of the slow cooker, then place chicken on top of the onion.
2. Combine remaining ingredients and pour over chicken.
3.  Cover and cook on low 7-9 hours or on high 3-4 hours.
Serve over noodles, pasta, or rice

(Sorry, no pics, as I made this and then promptly left on vacation!)
