Chicken Cacciatore

This is one of my go to recipes! I LOVE IT! It’s yummy and easy to make (I think). And the leftovers are EVEN better! Also the recipe calls for wine! I love recipes that call for wine! You KNOW they are good if they have wine in them!

On this day one year ago I made:

Spicy Dr. Pepper Pork 

Caprese Salad 

Basil Chicken in coconut curry sauce 

Recipe

6 chicken thighs
2 teaspoons salt, plus more to taste
1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper, plus more to taste
1/2 cup all-purpose flour, for dredging
3 tablespoons olive oil

In a large heavy saute pan, heat the oil over a medium-high heat. (I added butter too, Butter= Flavor)

and saute just until brown,

about 5 minutes per side. If all the chicken does not fit in the pan, saute it in 2 batches. Transfer the chicken to a plate and set aside.

and turn them to coat in the sauce.

Bring the sauce to a simmer. Continue simmering over medium-low heat until the chicken is just cooked through, about 30 minutes for the breast pieces, and 20 minutes for the thighs.

Using tongs, transfer the chicken to a platter. If necessary, boil the sauce until it thickens slightly, about 3 minutes. Spoon off any excess fat from atop the sauce. Spoon the sauce over the chicken,and serve.

I served mine with wild rice
