How to Make Simply Good Chicken Cacciatore
- Mix enough flour, salt, and pepper to coat chicken pieces. Slightly dampen chicken pieces with water, then coat well with seasoned flour.
- Heat just enough oil to brown chicken. Brown chicken pieces until golden brown - add garlic and onion towards end of browning; saute until garlic and onion are tender, - a couple of minutes.
- Do not pour oil out of pan! Add rest of ingredients; mix well. Cover pan, heat to boiling, then turn down to a slow simmer.
- Simmer for one hour, or until chicken is tender. Serve with plain spaghetti and freshly grated Parmesan cheese.
