Chicken Cacciatore
 

Deborah Mele in FlorenceThis recipe comes from the web site of Deborah Mele, Italian Food Forever.

"My love affair with Italian cooking began almost 30 years ago when I married into a large Italian family, overflowing with talented cooks. Throughout the early years of my marriage, I had the opportunity to learn the basics of Italian cuisine, and to perfect traditional family recipes."

This is a must visit web site - if you would like to learn more then <click here>

"Tender, succulent chicken pieces are cooked in this robust tomato sauce. Serve on Garlic Potatoes, or on a bed of Soft Polenta along with a sautéed green vegetable such as Broccoli Rabe Or Spinach". (See Italian Food Forever)

Ingredients

1 Boiler / Fryer, Cut Into 8 Pieces (about 3 - 4 Pounds)
2 Tablespoons Olive Oil
1 Medium Onion, Chopped
2 Cloves Garlic, Minced
1 Celery Stalk, Chopped
4 oz. Mushrooms, Chopped
1/2 Cup Dry White Wine
1 (14 oz) Can Chopped Tomatoes
1/2 Cup Chicken Broth
1 Teaspoon Dried Oregano
1/4 Cup Fresh Chopped Parsley
Salt & Pepper
Pinch Of Red Pepper Flakes

Method
  • Rinse the chicken pieces, and then pat dry.
  • Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium heat, and brown the chicken pieces well on both sides. Remove the chicken pieces to a plate.
  • Add the mushrooms, onions and celery to the pan drippings, and sauté until soft, about 5 minutes.
  • Add the garlic, and cook another minute or two.
  • Add the chicken back into the skillet, and add the white wine. Cook on medium heat until it has almost completely evaporated.
  • Add in the chopped tomatoes, broth and seasonings. Simmer, covered for about 30 minutes.
  • If the sauce has not thickened, remove the chicken pieces from the pan, and bring the sauce mixture to a boil. Cook a few minutes until it has reduced and thickened. Serve hot!

Variation:

You may add some small tasty black olives to the chicken and sauce mixture in the last minute or two of cooking.
