Simply Good Chicken Cacciatore

My (first) mother-in-law was known for her dislike of cooking, and, after her children were grown and on their own, she relied on frozen entrees and 'take-out' much of the time. So I was surprised when she served home-made Chicken Cacciatore when having my husband and me to dinner one time. I loved it, and asked for the recipe. After seeing how easy it is to make, I understood its' appeal to her (in addition to its taste, of course!).

*She did not pour off the "grease" after browning the chicken - neither do I. Not the healthiest way to cook, I'll admit, but the drippings do add
flavor!

How to Make Simply Good Chicken Cacciatore

Step-by-Step
