    So I made this recipe last week and decided to cook it today. I thawed it in the fridge overnight and it was still frozen this morning, so I ran it under some warm water just to loosen it from the bag and dumped it into the crock pot still frozen. It worked perfectly fine. This is probably my absolute favorite thing I have made from this website as of yet. It has so much flavor!!! It’s so good I’m going to be freezing at least 3 more bags to have for later and I’m going to triple the recipe and make it for an event we are having.

    I cannot find pancetta anywhere!!! I have been looking at every single store. I would love to make this. Does anyone have any suggestions?

  • Valerie Stalter says:

    Where do you find the bag labels?

  • Brenda Hawthorne says:

    I need the label??????

    My entire family loved this recipe! I couldn’t find pancetta so I used thick-cut bacon instead. This meal was super flavorful! I cooked it in my instant pot.

    This was absolutely fantastic! Hands down the best meal I’ve made from this site!! Followed the recipe exactly except I substituted skinless, boneless thighs for the breasts. Cooked in crockpot 4.5 hrs. on low and then shredded the chicken and put back in sauce. So tender, moist and juicy!

    Hello! This one sure looks good! I’ve seen other people ask this question. Where do we find the labels for each of the recipes? Not the Avery labels but the instructions to print out to put on the bags.

    This chicken cacciatore (I usually say “kitchen chacatore” accidentally) recipe is my family’s absolute favorite!! Having a daughter who doesn’t eat meat just leaves more for the rest of us!! It’s definitely HER loss.
    Thank you for all the great recipes you’ve given to us!!
