Slow-cooked Chicken Cacciatore

Perversely, I plan on using my slow cooker a lot more during this heat wave as it saves me standing at the cooker getting hot!  This is super simple and quite tasty.

Ingredients (serves 2)
2 chicken breasts
Plain flour to coat
125g mushrooms, sliced
1 green pepper, chopped
1 large onion, chopped
1 tin chopped tomatoes
125ml white wine
Generous pinch of oregano & thyme
Handful of fresh Basil

Coat the chicken breasts in a little flour and brown them on both sides in a pan for a few minutes.  Put the chicken into the slow cooker.

Next, fry the mushrooms for 5 mins then put them on top of the chicken, adding the pepper & onion to the slow cooker.  Mix the tinned tomatoes, white wine and seasoning in a jug and pour over.  Cook on LOW for 5-6 hours (or HIGH for 3.5 hours if you are in a hurry).

Stir in the fresh basil and serve with tagliatelle or rice.
