"This dish takes some prep and pre-cooking before putting in the slow cooker, but then you can leave and take care of things for 4 hours while your meal cooks! Leftovers can easily be turned into soup by shredding the chicken and adding some stock, ditalini, zucchini, and carrots (or vegetables of your choice). Just simmer until the flavors meld and adjust for needed salt or pepper! Serve the Cacciatore over polenta or pasta."
