Instructions

Dredge chicken in flour, shaking off any excess.

Brown chicken on both sides in oil in a sauté pan over medium-high heat, about 8–10 minutes. Transfer chicken to a 4- to 6-qt. slow cooker.

Deglaze pan with wine, scraping up any brown bits. Cook until liquid is reduced by half; transfer to the slow cooker.

Add whole and crushed tomatoes, onion, mushrooms, garlic, Italian seasoning, and anchovy paste to the slow cooker.

Cover slow cooker and cook cacciatore until chicken is fork-tender, on low setting, 3½–4½ hours.

Add bell pepper, cover slow cooker, and cook until it's tender, 30 minutes more.

Top servings of cacciatore with oregano and Parmesan. Serve over Lemon-Herb Pasta.

Brown chicken pieces; don't cook them all the way through — they'll finish cooking in the slow cooker.
