This is one of my favorite go-to recipes when I cant think of something to make for company.

This rustic chicken cacciatore recipe is fabulous. It sounds fancy but is actually a very easy to prepare dinner. With its robust flavor and a hint of oregano, we loved the tomato wine sauce. The chicken stews in it and absorbs all the wonderful flavors. Once cooked, the chicken falls off the bone with every bite. Test Kitchen Avatar The Test Kitchen
