Chicken Cacciatore


  • 1 1/2 lbs boneless and skinless chicken thighs
  • 1 small onion, chopped
  • 1 celery stalk, chopped
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 yellow pepper, chopped
  • 1/4 cup fresh basil, chopped
  • 1/4 cup flour
  • 1 teaspoon red pepper flakes
  • 1/2 teaspoon oregano
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 6 oz Pinot Noir

You can use any parts of the chicken you would like whether it’s bone-in chicken thighs, legs or boneless breast. I chose the boneless and skinless chicken thigh because the meat becomes so tender that I didn’t want it to fall off the bone and have random bones lost in the meal.

Put the chicken in a Ziploc bag, add flour and shake to coat.

Set Ninja to STOVE TOP HIGH and add the olive oil. Place the chicken into the pot and brown for 5 min per side.


Add onions, garlic, celery, yellow pepper and pour in tomatoes. Stir. Add oregano, pepper flakes and basil. Stir lightly.


Cover and cook on SLOW COOK HIGH for 4 hours.

It’s almost ready…


Okay, NOW it’s ready


Serve over rice or noodles.

Enjoy with that glass of Pinot Noir.
