Chicken Cacciatore

July 16, 2011

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. 


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


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.
