Chicken Cacciatore by Normy

When this dish was made, I did not make it, Normy did. I went and got my hairs did and that takes 3 hours. So I had asked my Normy to make dinner and he agreed and he also agreed that he would take pictures as well! Not as many me but hey he took them. So I can not take credit for this recipe or the pictures! It’s all Normy! And can I tell you too this is also his 1ST Pioneer Woman Recipe!

Preheat oven to 350 degrees (F).

Cook pasta according to package directions. Do not overcook! Drain and set aside.

Salt and pepper both sides of the pieces of chicken. Dredge chicken in flour.
Heat olive oil and butter in a heavy skillet or Dutch oven on the stove top over medium-high heat. Place chicken skin down in pan,
four pieces at a time. Brown chicken on both sides,
then remove to a clean plate.
Repeat with remaining chicken. Pour off half the fat in the pan and discard.

Add sliced onions and peppers, as well as the garlic. Stir around for 1 minute. Add mushrooms and stir around for 1 minute. Add thyme, turmeric, and salt. (And crushed red pepper flakes if you like things a little spicy.) Add extra black pepper to taste. Stir, then pour in wine. Allow to bubble.

Pour in canned tomatoes and stir to combine.
Add chicken back into the pan,
skin side up, without totally submerging the chicken.
Place lid on the pot and put it into the oven for 45 minutes. Remove lid and increase heat to 375 degrees. Cook for an additional 15 minutes.

Remove pan from the oven. Remove chicken from the pot and place it on a plate. Remove vegetables from pot and place them on a plate. Return pot to burner and turn heat to medium high. Cook and reduce sauce for a couple of minutes.

Pour cooked, drained noodles on a large platter or in a big serving bowl. Add vegetables all over the top, then place chicken pieces on top of the vegetables. Spoon juices from the pot over the chicken and pasta (amount to taste.)
