Skillet Chicken Cacciatore
Chicken Cacciatore is an Italian comfort food and I love making it in my iron skillet because it is so quick and easy. This dish can be served with any pasta or rice of your preference. My favorite way to serve it is with Potato Gnocchi! As always I hope you give this recipe a try, and I am sure it will become a favorite.
6 boneless skinless chicken thighs (you can use chicken breasts or tenderloin also)
2 strips of bacon
1 cup of diced onion
1 cup of chopped carrot
1/2 cup of chopped celery
2 cloves of garlic
1 tbsp of flour
2 to 3 tbsp of tomato paste
1/2 cup of white wine
2 cups of chicken broth
1 can of diced or stewed tomatoes
1 tsp of dried basil
1 tsp of dried oregano
1 tsp of dried thyme
1 tsp of salt
1/2 tsp of pepper
1. Cut bacon into pieces and cook in large skillet until crisp. Remove bacon from skillet and add the chicken that has been seasoned with salt and pepper. Allow the chicken to cook a couple minutes on each side then remove chicken and place it on a plate.
2. Add the onion, carrots, and celery to the skillet and cook until the vegetables begin to soften, then add the garlic, flour, and tomato paste.
3. Add the wine, chicken broth, and tomatoes, stirring until everything is mixed completely.
4. Add the chicken back to the sauce, then cover and place in a 350 degree oven for 30 to 45 minutes until chicken is tender and sauce has thickened. (if the sauce seems to thin you can add more tomato paste)
5. Serve over pasta or rice. Eat and Enjoy!
