Chicken Cacciatore

Today I made chicken cacciatore using Wegmans slow cooker recipe.
Lots of people in my neighborhood must be making this since Wegmans was out of the McCormick's Italian seasoning. When I got home, I couldn't believe that we didn't have any but I found a recipe to make my own.

Italian Seasoning
1 tbsp. dried basil
1 tbsp. dried oregano
1 tbsp. dried parsley flakes
1 tsp. rosemary
1 tsp. thyme
1/2 tsp. paprika
1/2 tsp. black pepper

This is the Chicken Recipe
you can also find it on the Wegmans website

After I got everything in the crockpot I went out to Eastview where I met Larry for our iPhone class at the Apple store. It was very enlightening and we picked up a bunch of tips.
