Crockpot Chicken Cacciatore

I made this Friday morning and served it over Gnocci. Let me know what you think.

A few of you asked for this:

I use a 7 quart crockpot
Slice a large onion into bottom of Crockpot
Lay 16 skinless bone-in chicken thighs on top of onions (trim all visable fat)
Season w/ pepper, 1 T. oregano, 1 T. basil, 4 cloves minced garlic
Slice a large red pepper and 8 mushrooms and layer on chicken
Pour 2 28ounce cans of whole plum tomatoes on top (I prefer san marzano (any brand))
Rinse cans out with 1/2 cup red wine & 1/2 cup water, pour over top
Add 4 more cloves of minced garlic & 3 bay leaves, stir into tomatoes
Cover and cook on low for 8-9 hours
When done genlty remove chicken thighs (try to keep together) & keep warm
Turn Crockpot up to high and cook sauce for up to 1 hour longer
Add chicken back in & serve w/ pasta, rice, gnocci, etc
