Chicken Cacciatore

This recipe brings up bittersweet emotions for me. My grandfather, who passed away this week, prepared this recipe for my family when we visited him in Michigan. We all enjoyed the recipe so much that he sent each of us a copy.

Simple Chicken Cacciatore
3 lbs. boneless chicken breasts
1 small white onion, chopped
1 lb. fresh mushrooms, quartered
2 cloves garlic, minced
1/4 cup flour
1/2 cup chicken broth
2 Tbsp. tomato paste
14 1/2 oz. whole peeled tomatoes, drained
1 tsp. basil
1/2 tsp. oregano
1/2 tsp. thyme
2 Tbsp. olive oil
1/2 tsp. black pepper
Salt and pepper to taste

Layer onions in the bottom of a crock pot. Place the chicken breasts on top, and then place in the remaining ingredients. Cover the crock pot, and cook on low for 8 hours or high for 4 1/2 hours.
