"Balsamic chicken cacciatore is fast and delicious, and needs no tomatoes to stand on its own. It's a marvelous dish to serve to company." — Karin

I made this using all thighs, it worked out great. I served it over pasta and even the person who doesn't like wine or mushrooms asked how I made it.
I thought that this was the worst recipe for chicken cacciatore. I think I'll stick with the tomatoes. This recipe by far was not quick and easy.
I liked this recipe... i used only a 1/4 cup of vinegar and i chopped up the bacon and added it to the sauce... i also used flour instead of cornstarch to thicken... it turned out great and was quick to make
This really is a great dish. We really enjoyed it served over rice. The kids enjoyed it as well as my wife's family. I also made it with a homemade jalepeno and cheese french bread.
Very good. Although it sounded a little different, we enjoyed this very much. I used slightly less vinegar as someone had suggested. Next time, I will make more sauce and serve with rice.
I thought this was good, but not your traditional chicken cacciatore. I would prefer to call this a sweet and sour chicken since that is what it really tasted like. I found the vinegar to be a little overpowering (and I love balsamic) so I added a touch more brown sugar to offset it.
I evenly substituted chicken broth for the red wine and used Wish Bone's Balsamic Vinaigrette dressing in place of the balsamic vinegar. I also chopped boneless, skinless chicken breast into one-inch pieces before sauteeing instead of using chicken pieces. One more thing, fresh mushrooms could have been better but all I had was canned. Otherwise, we could not imaging this dish being much better than it was. I served this to my lovingly analytical/critical husband over white rice and he gave it his, "you can make this anytime" review. I agreed.
ABSOLUTELY DELICIOUS, EVEN THOUGH IT IS NOT A TRUE CHICKEN CACCIATORE. i SERVED IT WITH ANGEL HAIR AND IT WAS A BIG HIT!
