Feeding the Active Writer

Continuing the series of tasty, low carb dishes that can be made with a minimum of fuss that can be cooked once and eaten later.  I'm going to stop numbering these posts.

Todays entry:  Cheesy Chicken Cacciatore

2 12 oz cans tomato paste
1 28 oz can diced tomatoes
8 oz fresh mushrooms, chopped
1/2 cup chopped onion
1/2 cup chopped green peppers
1/2 cup red wine vinegar
4 tbsp finely minced garlic (What can I say?  I like garlic.)
1 Tbsp oregano
1/2 Tbsp basil
1/2 Tbsp thyme

4 lbs Boneless skinless chicken (I buy the bagged thighs for this)
12 oz grated mozzarella

In a large mixing bowl combine the first 10 ingredients to form the basic sauce.
Place half the chicken in a 5-6 quart slow cooker.
Add half the sauce and half the cheese.
Finish with the other half of the chicken, sause, and cheese.
Cook on low 10-12 hours.
While still hot, stir thoroughly.  The chicken should break up into pieces.

Serve hot over non-starchy vegetables.

This recipe can be divided into serving size portions and frozen for later thawing and reheating.
