Crock-pot Chicken Cacciatore
Place sliced onion in bottom of crock-pot. Add chicken (you can either use a whole chicken or chop it up in pieces).
Stir together tomato paste (use 1 can of "regular" tomato paste and 1 can with garlic), creole seasoning (use e.g. Konriko brand), pepper, garlic, herbs, and 1/4 cup of wine.
You can go against "tradition" and use a red wine. You might like the way reds blend with tomato sauces. In this case, you can use a light Chianti to pour over the chicken.
Pour remaining wine over the chicken as well. Cover and cook on LOW for 7 to 9 hours (HIGH 3 to 4 hours). Serve chicken over hot buttered spaghetti, vermicelli, fettucini, or other pasta.
