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!
