Test Recipe #2: Chicken Cacciatore

Chicken, olive oil, mushrooms, onion, garlic, tomatoes, red wine, some herbs, and a bit of flour and S&P.

Very simple recipe. Brown chicken, remove to plate, saute veggies. Return chicken to pot (Dutch oven), add mixture of tomatoes (diced and sauce), wine, herbs, salt and pepper, and a bit of flour. Cover and simmer until chicken is cooked and tender.

I only made the one recipe; no meat-free version for myself. I just wasn't in the mood...

Matt really enjoyed it. He couldn't resist taking a shot, calling it simple fare; but at the same time had to admit it was very tasty. The chicken was incredibly tender, the sauce was flavorful.

You could easily reduce this recipe for two people, or increase the amount for company. Everything came together quickly, and most ingredients should already be on hand (it would be perfectly alright to substitute bone-less, skinless for bone-in chicken parts).

He ate his with some buttered pasta, topped with grated Parmesan...apparently, it went quite well together.

Another solid recipe.
