Slow Cooker Chicken Cacciatore

This is rustic Italian cooking at its tastiest with the added convenience of a slow cooker. As the word 'cacciatore' means 'hunter' in Italian, this dish is essentially a hearty hunter's stew... chicken braised in a sweet yet briney sauce made of tomatoes, onions, herbs, wine (or vinegar) and in our case today, olives and capers.
