Chicken Cacciatore

Print PrintShare with Friends


My grandmother's recipe. I only changed the type of chicken. I prefer using tasty meat that doesn't need the bone/skin so much for flavor. My grandmother used a whole small chicken, but picking the bones out of this dish was a huge pain in the neck. I also use yellow and orange peppers for color, but she liked red.
