This was good and I will make it again, but it will need some tweaking. The biggest change I will make is to switch out the breasts for thighs. I used big beautiful chicken breasts, and the were kind of wasted in this dish. They didn't come out with any real flavor and they were kind of dry from cooking for 7 hours. I think thighs would at least be more tender and not feel like such a waste because they are cheaper. I think they are actually more traditional in cacciatore anyway. Other than that, I agree with others that it was a little watery, so next time I will cut back on the spaghetti sauce and use a can of tomato paste as recommended. I will also add more herbs (oregano, basil, pepper flakes, etc.) to kick up the flavor, and I will probably add a little red wine close to the end of cooking to add a little extra body. I also think this needs more vegetables, so I will probably add some zucchini, eggplant, carrot, something, to make it more robust. All in all, this is a nice slow cooker option that is great to dip into at the end of the day. Thanks for the recipe!
