Chicken Cacciatore

This dish kept coming up on "Everybody Loves Raymond," so I finally looked it up. I can't vouch for its originality, but it's really good. I mean, chicken, bell peppers, tomatoes and mushrooms - what's not to like :). Recipe from

Ingredients (for 2 servings):

1/2 cup flour for coating
1 lb chicken, cut into pieces
1/2 tablespoon vegetable oil
1/4 onion, chopped
1/2 clove garlic, minced
1 green bell pepper, chopped
3.5 oz canned diced tomatoes
1 teaspoon dried oregano
1/4 cup white wine
1 cup fresh mushrooms, quartered
salt and pepper to taste


Combine the flour with a pinch of salt and pepper in a plastic bag.
Shake the chicken pieces in flour until coated.
Heat oil in a large skillet.
Brown chicken pieces. Remove from skillet.
Add the onion, garlic and bell pepper and saute until the onion is slightly browned.
Return the chicken to the skillet and add the tomatoes, oregano and wine.
Cover and simmer for 30 minutes.
Add the mushrooms and salt and pepper to taste.
Simmer for 10 more minutes.
Sprinkle with basil and serve over pasta or rice.
