2 (3 pound)
whole chickens, each cut into 8 pieces
salt and ground black pepper to taste
yellow onion, chopped
green bell pepper, seeded and chopped
white button mushrooms, quartered
chopped fresh oregano
1 (28 ounce) can
whole peeled tomatoes in juice, coarsely chopped
1 1/2 cups
capers, drained and rinsed
coarsely chopped fresh basil
I prepared the recipe as written except I didn't have any wine and I used dried basil and I added black olives. After tasting this, it was somewhat bland so I added extra Italian seasoning and stirred in a little sour cream before serving (per another cacciatore recipe). All in all it turned out tasty with a few modification so this is a great base recipe I will probably make again.
One other note, I cut the chicken into bite-sized pieces before re-adding them to the pot to reduce cooking time and this whole recipe ended up taking about half an hour to prepare!
Great recipe. Left out tomato paste. Like mine soupier. Added more bell peppers
