Crockpot Chicken Cacciatore

Preheat crockpot on High setting and add following ingredients for sauce:

3 cans Tutturosso ( or your favorite brand) crushed tomatoes
2 cans Tutturosso (or your favorite brand) tomatoe puree
3 tablespoons each of:  garlic powder, italian seasoning, dried basil, sugar, fresh parsley (flat leaf italian has more flavor)
**You can also use your own "homemade" pasta sauce (gravy!) recipe for this.  

If you like onions, add as many as you want (we use 4-5 med. onions) quartered into the sauce.

Preheat non stick pan and add about 1/2 to 1 inch of oil (enough to fry your chicken thighs in)

Again, use as many chicken thighs as you want to or will fit into your crockpot; we used 12.

Rinse and pat dry chicken thighs and sprinkle both sides with pepper, garlic powder and italian seasoning.  Brown on each side, about
4-5 minutes each side.  Add browned thighs to crockpot of sauce and cook on High 6-7 hours.  

If you like mushrooms, when there is about 1 hour left of cooking time, clean and slice up white button mushrooms (not too thin though) and
add to crockpot.

Serve with your pasta of choice, a nice tossed salad and some good italian bread!  Enjoy!!
