Chicken Cacciatore for Dummies

I wanted to pass on an easy recipe for chicken cacciatore that will likely impress friends, significant others...heck, all of your dining companions. This dish was made with left-over ingredients that I had in the fridge and I think that's why it will appeal to many. The recipe that I used is here and the following are my variations:

I made a healthier version of this dish and omitted bacon. Also, not having a whole chicken to cut up, I used just the drumsticks and they worked fine. Instead of mushrooms and baby carrots, I substituted in green peppers and tomatoes--mmmm...tender and delicious.

A bed of white rice was the starch in all of this, which was yummy and soaked up all the red wine sauce quite well. I think that was my favorite part of this--the sauce. Slightly sweet and hearty from the red wine, it was a treat for the tastebuds at the end of the day. Enjoy it and let me know the variations you come up with.

  1. I wooed my husband around 1968 with a similar chicken cacciatore made in an electric skillet in his college apartment. Brings back fond memories. At the time he had family in Astoria. We toe dipped into Marxism Ms. Foodista, but knew it was ultimately too fascistica for a free world.
