Recipe Review... CrockPot Chicken Cacciatore

When I was young my mom would make chicken cacciatore once in awhile, and I really liked it, so when I came across this recipe I figured that is sounded easy enough! It was really good, and really saucy, I think I will make this one again, next time I am going to use more chicken broth (I didn't use white wine), more bell peppers, and more pepper flakes.

3 lbs chicken, cut up in pieces
1 large onion, thinly sliced
2 (6 ounce) cans tomato paste
6 ounces sliced mushrooms(didn't have)
1 green bell pepper, finely chopped
2-4 cloves garlic, minced
2 teaspoons oregano
1 teaspoon dried basil
1/2 teaspoon celery powder (didn't have)
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup dry white wine (used chicken broth)
3 tablespoons olive oil
1 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes, optional

1 Place onions in bottom of crock pot.
2 Add chicken pieces.
3 Stir all the other ingredients together.
4 Pour over chicken.
5 Cook on low heat 7 to 9 hours or high heat for about 3 to 4 hours.
6 Serve over pasta or rice.

I think I should start adding photos of food I review... if I remember

OK, dh was lazy so I made this today since I was home today with sick kiddo.
I deleted all the ingredients you did and sub'ed the chicken broth too, but in addition I did not have a bell pepper so deleted that. I think that was mistake number 1. Mistake number 2, I added more red pepper.
I have to say the meal was delicious BUT I could not have seconds as my lips were on FIRE from the red pepper. BUT it was a good meal and I think with a little less red pepper, the kids might actually eat it too! Thanks cat, definitely adding this to the menu options!
