Stephen's Chicken Cacciatore

Print Friendly and PDF
Here's a super chicken cacciatore recipe from my son, Stephen, picture here (on the left) with his buddy, Brent, while they were in Las Vegas.  The chicken turns out so tender and delicious.  You can serve it over spaghetti noodles or your favorite pasta.  The recipe originally came from Men's Health Magazine, but has been adjusted slightly.

2 T olive oil
8 pieces of chicken
Salt and pepper
1 bell pepper, diced
1 medium onion, chopped
4 cloves garlic, minced
1 tsp red pepper, optional
approx. 10 olives, sliced
1T sugar
2 generous splashes of Worcestershire sauce
1/2 cup dry red wine (Cabernet)
1-1/2 cup chicken broth
1-lb roma tomatoes, chopped
1T flat leaf parsley
Grated cheese, optional

Season the chicken with salt and pepper and saute in olive oil for 8-10 minutes.  Set aside.  Saute the bell pepper, onion, garlic, red pepper and olives for 10 min. in a large skillet.  Add the red wine and cook for 5 min.  Add the sugar, Worcestershire sauce, chicken stock, roma tomatoes and chicken, and simmer for 20-30 min. until the chicken is tender and a lot of the liquid has been evaporated.  Top with the flat leaf parsley.  Serve over your favorite pasta.  Add grated cheese to your liking.
