Slow Cooker Chicken Cacciatore

Serves 6

½ cup all purpose flour
½ teaspoon kosher salt
1 large package boneless skinless chicken thighs (about 1.5 pounds)
2 teaspoons olive oil
½  cup marinara sauce
½ cup chicken stock
½  red onion, sliced
1 clove galirc, thinly iced

1 green or red bell pepper, sliced
Fresh basil
Red pepper flakes and Parmesan cheese for serving (optional)
Place flour and salt in a large resealable back. Add chicken and toss to coat. Heat oil in a skillet or slow cooker with a browning function. Shake excess flour from chicken and brown on both sides (it takes about 2 to 3 minutes per side). Add marinara, chicken broth, onion garlic, and pepper.  Cover and cook on LOW for 8 hours or HIGH for 4 hours. Allow to cool for 10 minutes and taste for seasoning; add additional salt if needed and top with fresh basil.  Serve with red pepper flakes and Parmesan cheese, if desired.
