Chicken Cacciatore

Chicken Cacciatore
Serves 4-6

1 Whole Chicken, Cut In 8 Pieces
1 of each – Green, Red, Yellow Peppers, cut in large pieces
2 Tbsp Olive Oil
Salt & Pepper
Parmesan Cheese
1 Quart Cannizzaro Mushroom Marinara
1 tsp Crushed Red Pepper (optional)

Season the chicken with Salt & Pepper. Heat a heavy bottom pot or Dutch Oven over medium-high heat.  Drizzle with olive oil and place chicken, in batches (so as not to overcrowd the pan) to brown.  Remove chicken once browned and set aside.  Add peppers to the pan and sauté for 1-2 minutes.  Add back the chicken with any juices, crushed red pepper and 1 quart of Cannizzaro Mushroom Marinara.  Lower heat to a simmer, cover and cook for about 30 minutes until chicken is cooked through.  Serve by itself or over rice or your favorite pasta.

Chicken Cacciatore is made with garlic, onions, herbs, mushrooms, and wine – luckily, our Mushroom Marinara already contains all of these ingredients!  Here you have a much quicker and simpler version of a wonderful, hearty dish – enjoy!
