"Traditional chicken cacciatore is brought to a new level with onions, peppers, mushrooms and red wine. This hunter-style version gives a heartiness and warmth that will satisfy any appetite! This recipe is inspired by the cacciatore that we enjoy from our favorite Italian restaurant. Serve over pasta with freshly-grated Parmesan and a green salad!" — Pam

Very good. I made a half-recipe, used boneless chicken thighs and finished the cacciatore in the slow cooker (5 hours on low) instead of the oven. I thought the sauce reduced a bit too much in the simmering, so I added another splash of wine and about a half-cup of chicken broth. Always looking for recipes that I can freeze in single portions for hubby's dinner (I work nights). This fits the bill nicely.
worth the effort!!!!
Family loved it! Cut the recipe in half. However, because others reviewed that the sauce cooked down, I used the regular amount of wine and tomato paste instead of halving it. Might use a bit more oregano and basil, but that's a personal seasoning preference.
made this..excellent!! Makes ALOT.. for 2 people..used 3 ribs of celery, 2 carrots,1 onion, 1 whole chicken,cut up. In a 13 quart stock pot...(This will keep us fed for 3 to 4 days).. 1 package linguine noodles...Convection oven, 325 degrees for 1-1/2 hours... If camping,I would 1/4 the recipe to keep from going bad in the ice chest. You need a REALLY big dutch oven for the whole recipe
This was very good! My family loved it!
Tasty and not too hard to make.
