This Chicken Cacciatore recipe delivers a lot of flavor and is easy, easy, easy to make. This is my husbands favorite meal. So this is what I make him for those “special” occasions.
This hearty dish is made with lots of fresh herbs, tangy green olives, crisp celery, fried chicken all bubbly away in a red sauce. And if that wasn’t enough I added a splash of white wine and served it on a bed of pasta! Just like spaghetti this Chicken Cacciatore tastes even better the next day. 😀
