Wife, Mummy, Nurse: Chicken Cacciatore

24 February 2011

Chicken Cacciatore

Last night for dinner, my husband and I had chicken cacciatore.  When we first started dating, I began to make more Italian dishes.  He really likes Italian food, especially pasta.  I continue to experiment and cook new Italian recipes for him.  Hope you enjoy making this dish as much as I did.

Dredge 1-2 lbs. chicken pieces in flour.
Melt 2 Tbsp. butter in pan.
Brown chicken.
Cut 1 green pepper, 1 yellow pepper, and 1 onion.  Stir into pan with chicken.  Cook for approximately 2 minutes.
Add 2 cloves crushed garlic* and 1 Tbsp. Italian seasoning.
Stir in 1/2 cup white wine.  Simmer for 3-5 minutes.
Add one 28 oz. can crushed tomatoes.
Cook for 30 minutes or until chicken is cooked through.

Serve over pasta.

*Note: you can add more garlic.  My husband believes, "You can never have too much garlic."

We had enough leftovers for lunch today and to have for dinner tonight.
