Chicken Cacciatore

In the summer, I still crave comfort food from my Italian heritage.  Sometimes, on a damp cooler summery evening, it is nice to have something that tastes like you have been cooking all day.  I have even been known to toss all of these ingredients into the crock pot and let them simmer away on low for about 8 hours.  The choice is yours, the result is pure deliciousness. 

Ingredients:

4 boneless chicken breasts~cut into small bite size pieces
2 tbsp olive oil
1 large onion~diced
2 cloves garlic~minced
1  14 1/2 oz can of diced tomatoes with green peppers and onions
1  6 oz can of tomato paste
2 tbsp dried parsley
1 tsp sugar
1/2 tsp rosemary
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp thyme
3/4 cup white wine
1/4 tsp oregano

Preparation:

1.  Brown chicken in olive oil, garlic and onions.

2.  In separate bowl, combine all other ingredients.

3.  Once chicken is browned, add tomato mixture and simmer over low heat for 1 hour.

4.  Serve over spaghetti.
