Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Pour dressing into a zip-lock plastic bag; add chicken pieces and refrigerate for an hour.
  2. Heat olive oil in a large sauté pan.
  3. Mix the flour, 1/2 teaspoon of salt and 1/4 teaspoon pepper together; lightly dredge chicken in the seasoned flour.
  4. Brown the chicken pieces on both sides and transfer to crock pot when done.
  5. Sauté onion until translucent in the olive oil used to brown the chicken; add wine and 2 tablespoons of the tomato paste to deglaze the pan. Transfer to crock pot.
  6. Stir together remaining 2 cans of tomato paste and all the ingredients EXCEPT for the bay leaf, olives, garbanzo beans, capers, and Parmesan cheese; spread over chicken in crock pot.
  7. Lay bay leaf on top of chicken; cover and cook on LOW for 7 to 9 hours (HIGH: 3 to 4 hours).
  8. During the last hour of cooking, add the olives, garbanzo beans and capers. If at this time the sauce appears too thin, add 1 or 2 tablespoons of tomato paste to thicken slightly.
  9. To serve, discard the bay leaf and arrange the chicken over your favorite hot pasta; ladle with sauce and sprinkle with Parmesan cheese.
