Gluten Free Chicken Cacciatore

This recipe ticks all the boxes! Not only is it gluten-free, dairy-free and egg-free, it’s also done in the slow cooker! Be sure to use bone-in pieces of chicken, this keeps the meat from drying out.


  • 6 Bone-in Skinless Chicken Thighs (you can use 2-3 large breasts but thighs tend to be more juicy!)
  • 1 tsp Salt
  • 1/2 tsp Pepper
  • 1/2 Onion sliced
  • 2 Carrots sliced
  • 100 grams Mushrooms quartered
  • 1 Red Capsicum sliced
  • 420 grams Tomatoes, Diced
  • 3 tbsp Tomato Paste
  • 2 Garlic Cloves minced
  • 2 tsp Dried Parsley


  1. Rub the chicken with the salt and pepper and place on top on the onion, carrots, mushrooms and capsicum in the bottom of a slow cooker.
  2. In a medium bowl, combine the tomatoes, tomato paste, garlic and parsley and pour over the top of the chicken.
  3. Cover and cook on low for 4-6 hours - a good indication it's ready is if the carrots have gone tender.
  4. For a thicker sauce - remove the chicken from the slow cooker and pour the vegetables and sauce into a saucepan. Bring the sauce to a boil, then reduce to a simmer and leave for 10 minutes to let the sauce thicken.
  5. Serve the chicken topped with the sauce.
