Slow Cooker Chicken Cacciatore

This is one of the first things I ever learned to make, and for some reason, I haven’t done it in years.  So easy in the crock pot, and the leftovers are great.  This is a recipe I got from Cooking Light, modified it a little bit, and served over whole wheat spaghetti.  Definite make again – below is with my changes.
