Chicken Cacciatore

Chicken Cacciatore over Cabbage Noodles Recipe

I’m a big fan of fast and easy meal ideas, especially ones made from all natural ingredients! My husband is a fan of pastas and Italian food, and this recipe is a winner with both of us!

The main part of this recipe can be prepared in a slow cooker or crock pot early in the day and the cabbage “noodles” can be made in minutes for a fast dinner on busy nights! I love that the kids get extra vegetables, and they enjoy the “pasta” with the need for grain-based noodles.

It may sound strange to use cabbage for noodles, but it is excellent, especially in this recipe. If you aren’t a cabbage fan, you can use a spiralizer to make noodles out of zucchini or another vegetable.

  1. YUM! I pinned for later! 🙂

  2. sounds yummy, I can’t wait to try…..
    I love using Cauliflower for mashed potatoes or fried rice, and zucchini for “noodles” what other tricks do you have to subsitute starches?

  3. Growing up we always made this with bell peppers and diced tomatoes only and did it all in a large frying pan so it only took an hour or so. As an adult I’ve also added in carrots, black olives, chick peas, and summer squash.

  4. what do you do with the coconut oil

    • Sorry… it is used to cook the cabbage in and added to the crock pot as well…

  5. Have you ever tried Shirataki noodles?

  6. AWESOME!!! Even the kids loved it!!

  7. I’ve tried spaghetti squash noodles which were pretty good but I’ve never even heard of using cabbage as noodles. Pretty cool idea… I’ll definitely have to check it out soon 🙂

  8. What temp do you use if cooking in the oven?

  9. I baked this today in the oven; and sauteed the cabbage noodles in coconut oil — what a great idea! — Excellent!

    • How long did you bake and at what temp? I would like to make and freeze before cooking so baking would be perfect.

  10. I don’t know if you are aware of this but alot of your recipes are Ketogenic approved! and for that I thank you!!!!!!! 🙂 I found your site by chance and I am so glad I did!!


  11. I am sauteeing the cabbage right now, and the chicken cacciatore is ready in the crockpot. Thank you for posting this. It smells delicious and I”m sure it will be great!

  12. I am interested in the menus for leaky gut.

  13. What can i use in place of the cabbage for noodles (besides pasta & rice too)? I tried this & the cabbage caused my stomache bloating & lots of noise. I have hashimotos so my stomache is a bit sensitive.

  14. My whole family ate this! That almost never happens 😀
