Chicken Cacciatore

By Guvi @Guvi9

The ingredients are as follows:
  • Olive oil, as needed
  • 3 chicken breasts, sliced in half
  • Kosher salt
  • 1 large onion, sliced
  • Pinch crushed red pepper flakes
  • 4 garlic cloves, smashed and finely chopped
  • 1 red pepper, cut into 1/2-inch dice
  • 1 pound cremini mushrooms, cleaned and sliced
  • 1 cups dry white wine
  • 1 (28-ounce) can Italian plum tomatoes, pureed
  • 1 bundle thyme
  • 1 bay leaves
Coat a large, wide pot with olive oil and bring to a high heat. Season the chicken with salt and brown in the hot oil, working in batches, if needed. Once all the chicken is brown, remove to a plate and discard most of the excess fat.

If needed to coat the bottom of the pan, add a tablespoon of olive oil. Add the onions and crushed red pepper, season with salt, and sweat over low heat for 8 to 10 minutes.

 Add the white wine and reduce by half (yes, I had to move everything in a larger pot :)))

Return the chicken to the pan and add the tomatoes; taste for seasoning. Add the thyme bundle and bay leaves.

Bring the liquid to a boil and reduce to a simmer. Partially cover the pot and simmer for 20 to 30 minutes. Check the level of the sauce periodically during the cooking process and replenish it with water as needed; the level of liquid should be about even with the chicken.

Remove the chicken from the pot and place it on a serving platter. Taste the sauce for seasoning, adjust if needed. Skim the surface of the sauce if excessively greasy. Spoon the sauce over the chicken. I served it with pasta, one of my daughter's favourite.
