chicken alla cacciatore recipe

This Chicken Cacciatore Recipe is a simple recipe to put together. It does require quite a bit of cooking time, but it is well worth it. I followed the recipe and kept it simple. If you wanted to you could add red and green sweet peppers, and maybe a sliced zucchini to fancy it up a little bit. I used canned chopped tomatoes that had Basil, Oregano, and garlic already added but you could change this by using pure chopped tomatoes, and then adding your own seasoning.
The next time you can’t figure out what to put on the menu for supper give this Chicken Cacciatore Recipe a try; it’s really good.
