This was sooo good! I used boneless skinless chicken breasts and followed the recipe otherwise exactly. I let it simmer on the lowest setting for 2 hours and that chicken was the most tender flavorful chicken I've ever had. Absolutely delicious!
We love Chicken Cacciatore, especially bone-in. I’ve tried different recipes, but Taste of Home’s is by far the best. Recently, we ordered take-out from our local Italian restaurant. The special was Chicken Cacciatore, which my husband ordered. He was very disappointed– the chicken was overdone and the sauce bland. My husband commented that the Cacciatore I make is better so of course I had to make it for him last night. Several reviewers are confused about the Tomatoes. I use a 26.46 oz carton of Pomí’s chopped tomatoes. There’s really not much to drain, so I just throw the whole contents in. Also, for the cup of tomato sauce, I cheat a little and use Rao’s Tomato & Basil sauce. Usually when I made this recipe, I need to add a little extra sugar to counteract the bitterness, but last night, it was perfect without any additional sweetener. Maybe it was the wine I used: Cabernet Sauvignon. I've found 1/4 cup of flour for dusting the chicken is too much, so I add the rest when I cook the veggies. Also, I add some Kalamata Olives and some chopped up carrots. Thank you, Taste of Home, for this terrific recipe!
This was a hit. The sauce was so smooth.
First attempt: FANTASTIC. I converted this to a slow cooker dish. I browned the chicken thighs as described then set aside. I then prepared the vegetables as above. I omitted the sugar and kicked it up a notch with Calabrian Chilies (Italian Bomba from Trader Joe's') B A M ! Layered sauce over chicken in crock pot- auto setting: 2hrs high, 4hrs low. Fall off the bone spectacular. Served over flat Amish Egg Noodles. YUM-OH, No survivors!!
Was delicious added a little grape jelly to sweeten a bit
Thank you. I'm picky but I like this recipe, esp for summer when I just want stove-top cooking. I always add a pinch of cinnamon to tomato-based Italian recipes. : )
I've made this recipe twice since the "stay at home order" and everyone Loves it. Making it again today, thanks for the delicious recipe!
The recipe was good. We’ll have it again for sure. I did not include the green pepper and used a can of mushrooms since I did not have fresh.
A reviewer already asked this question but never received an answer. Why do you reserve juice from tomatoes? I was making this thinking you’d use it later, but was not in recipe. Wound up using half of the liquid because I was unsure. Turned out good, but was wondering if I was supposed to not use extra juice or not. Which goes to show, always read a recipe all the way through before attempting it.
I would make this recipe for company. Delish. Used white wine instead of red; no sugar and chicken broth instead of tomato sauce because I didn’t have tomato sauce. Great recipe!
