Chicken Cacciatore



This is an old favorite recipe and it's one of those comfort foods at our house and when you make it this will become one of your all time favs too, I know it

what you need:
1 whole chicken (separated into 8 pieces, about 3 - 3 1/2 pounds)
3 tablespoons olive oil
1 large onion (sliced)
3 garlic cloves (minced)
1 red bell pepper (sliced)
1 yellow bell pepper (sliced)
3/4 cup red wine
1- 1 1/2 cups crushed tomatoes
1 teaspoon dried oregano
1 teaspoon red pepper flakes
salt and pepper
crusty bread or french bread


how to make it:
Season chicken with salt and pepper. Add olive oil to a large high-sided saute pan or heavy-bottomed pot and place over medium-high heat. Add chicken, skin-side-down and cook until golden brown, about 5 minutes. Flip and cook until browned on the other side. Move chicken to the side of the pot.
Add the onions and garlic, and cook until soft. Add the bell peppers and sauté for a few more minutes. Season with salt and pepper. Add a nice splash of wine or chicken broth works too simmer until reduced by half. Add tomatoes, oregano, red pepper flakes, and season with salt and pepper. Partly cover pan and simmer for about 35 to 40 minutes.
Serve with bread.and a salad is great.or we also serve this dish with fried potatoes as a change up.
