Chicken Cacciatore

Usually the only way I buy chicken is the leg-quarters in those ten-pound bags.  I'm cheap, and that's the best bargain on meat anywhere.  When I get it home, I divide it three ways and freeze it in three-pound portions.  I thawed one of those yesterday thinking I'd make my low-fat version of Chicken gumbo.

Today I realized I have no sweet peppers in the house.  I'm sure the dish would be fine without them, but I don't like leaving out an ingredient.  In fact, it seemed as though every chicken dish I make regularly requires sweet peppers.

So I started leafing through one of my Better Homes and Gardens cookbooks and noticed I had all the ingredients required for Chicken Cacciatore.  I've never tasted it, much less made it, but I figured what the heck, go for it. 

I told Cliff, "I don't know how dinner will be; it's something I've never had.  Says here you serve it on spaghetti."

"Heck, bring it on," says he.  "Anything on spaghetti is bound to be good."

I must say I tasted the sauce a while ago, and it was yummy

This isn't one of my low-fat recipes, but it doesn't appear to be too loaded with bad stuff.

We'll see how it tastes.

I have made the recipe before and it is good !  Enjoy.  I'm having chicken and rice soup for lunch and don't know about supper yet.  Anything warm will do.

Oh, I do hope you enjoyed it!  I used to make mine with the chicken bone in ... now I make it with boneless chicken (easier to eat).  Yummy!
