Crockpot Chicken Cacciatore! A healthy spin on traditional Italian cacciatore made in a slow cooker. Served over zucchini noodles for a minimal effort, lower carb dinner that’s big on flavor. Gluten Free + Paleo + Low Calorie
I don’t know about you, but I always need a little reset this time of year. The madness of summer has me craving consistency + routine. Too many weird foods, eating out and vacations has me like BLAH. If there’s anything I’ve learned in my healthy eating journey, it’s that my body craves routine.
Routine helps me eat consistently well and maintain my sanity. This time of year is the BEST time of year to do a little reset before the craziness of the holidays comes. The good news is my 14 Day Sugar Challenge is open now.
100% of the people who have completed this challenge have said they’ve had less cravings and more energy.
You have to roll up your sleeves and do some work, but I promise it’s so worth it! Whenever people get off the challenge, they always tell me they wish there was more because it makes them feel so good. I’m listening to you guys and that’s why I’m doing things different this time.
I’m so excited about this challenge too because I’m adding more goodies to this one than previous challenges. A live cooking demo, a meal planner guide, a 4 week meal plan and more have been added to help you transition from the challenge into real life.
And, if you’re ready to get a jump start now let’s start by cooking up a healthy dinner like this Crockpot Chicken Cacciatore with zucchini noodles. No Frankenstein ingredients or hidden sugar, just real food made super easy thanks to a slow cooker.
A hearty meal full of deliciousness that fills you up with energy and doesn’t take you down like so many other meals out there. Ready to start? Grab your slow cooker and let’s go!
Crockpot Chicken Cacciatore
Crockpot Chicken Cacciatore! A healthy spin on traditional Italian cacciatore made in a slow cooker. Served over zucchini noodles for a minimal effort, low carb dinner that's big on flavor. Gluten Free + Paleo + Low Calorie
- 1 lb chicken breasts boneless, skinless
- 3 zucchini spiraled
- 1 green bell pepper diced
- 8 ounces canned mushrooms in water (sliced with water drained)
- 2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
- 15 ounces marinara sauce no salt or sugar added
- 1 tbsp balsamic vinegar
- 1/2 tbsp apple cider vinegar
- 2 tbsp minced garlic
- 1 tbsp Italian seasoning
- 1 tsp parsley
- salt and pepper to taste
To a slow cooker, add the extra virgin olive oil and minced garlic. Turn the heat to high.
Pound out the chicken breasts to no more than 1" inch thickness. If necessary, slice them into 4 pieces. Then place in the slow cooker over the garlic.
Top with Italian seasoning, parsley, salt, pepper, sliced bell peppers, marinara sauce, balsamic vinegar and apple cider vinegar.
Cover and cook on high 2 to 3 hours or on low 4 to 5 hours. I prefer cooking on high for a thicker sauce, but either method works.
Serve immediately over zucchini noodles.
