Pinspiration in the Kitchen- Chicken Cacciatore With Pomodoro Fresco Tomato Basil Sauce

I came across the recipe for Chicken Cacciatore shortly after I started following the Delallo Pinterest boards.  Those of you who have been following my blog for a while know all too well about my love affair with Delallo.  For a year, I lived in Greensburg, Pennsylvania just 15 minutes away from the Delallo Italian Marketplace in Jeannette.  (If you need a refresher, please CLICK HERE for the blog feature I wrote on Delallo on my former blog, Short & Sassy in Suburghia.)  My husband and I loved Delallo's so much that we ordered all of our wedding cakes from their bakery and drove them 2 hours over the state line. ;)

Okay, I got off course there. Back to the Chicken Cacciatore!  I was fortunate enough to receive a sneak peak of their five new Pomodoro Fresco Sauces...

Their Chicken Cacciatore recipes calls for their Pomodoro Fresco Tomato Basil sauce.  I know, I know... I am always advocating to make your own sauces from scratch, but take a looks at this...
Do you see anything above there that you cannot pronounce?? Exactly! :)

I did my own spin on the Delallo recipe (which you can find by clicking here), and decided to throw everything into the Crock Pot.  I still seasoned and floured the chicken thighs and browned them.  But then I threw them in the Crock Pot and covered them with the veggies and the rest of the ingredients including the Pomodoro Fresco Tomato Basil sauce.

The only changes I made ingredient wise is that I used red wine instead of white.  I actually didn't have any white on hand, and you all know how I am about using what you already have on hand. ;)  I cooked everything in the Crock Pot on Low for 6 hours.

It turned out rich in flavor. The chicken thighs just fell off the bone.  I served it over rice, but you could use any pasta you have on hand as well.
