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.

Chicken Cacciatore - Lady Behind The Curtain

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.  😀

  1. These look like a GREAT idea! Fresh herbs always go bad so quickly! I LOVE the idea of freezing them! It’s so cool that they don’t freeze!?!?! Great website too!
