What You'll Need

  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon salt, divided
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper, divided
  • 1 (3- to 3-1/2-pound) chicken, cut into 8 pieces
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 2 green bell peppers, thinly sliced
  • 1 large onion, cut in half then thinly sliced
  • 1/2 pound fresh sliced mushrooms
  • 1 large tomato, chopped
  • 1 (7.75-ounce) can garbanzo beans, drained
  • 2 to 3 sprigs fresh thyme, leaves removed from stems
  • 1 (24-ounce) jar spaghetti sauce
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1/4 cup white wine (optional)
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream

What to Do

  1. In a shallow dish, combine flour, 1/2 teaspoon salt, and 1/4 teaspoon pepper; mix well.  Dip chicken into flour mixture, coating evenly.
  2. In a Dutch oven or soup pot over medium-high heat, heat oil until hot.  Add chicken and brown on all sides.
  3. Add remaining ingredients to chicken (including the remaining 1/2 teaspoon salt and 1/4 teaspoon pepper), except for the heavy cream; mix well. Reduce heat to low, cover, and cook 40 to 45 minutes, or until chicken is no longer pink in center.  
  4. Remove chicken to a serving bowl. Stir heavy cream into the sauce and simmer for 2 to 3 minutes or until warm, but not boiling.  Spoon sauce over chicken and serve.

Can the Tuscan Chicken One Pot be made in the slow cooker?

Hello! Yes the Tuscan One Pot can be made in a slow cooker. Browning the chicken is still reccommended, but doesn't have to be. Add all the ingredients into slow cooker, except the heavy cream, as per the original recipe. Cover and cook on low heat for 6 to 7 hours or high heat for 3 to 4 hours, or until chicken is no longer pink in center and fork tender. Follow the original recipe for adding the heavy cream.
