    Default Chicken - it's what's for dinner (Saturday)


    I wanted to make chicken cacciatore, but every recipe was different so
    I made up my own version.

    I wanted to start with stewed tomatoes because they have green
    peppers, onions and herbs already, but I only had canned diced
    tomatoes so I went with that. I whizzed up 3/4 of the can in the food
    processor and left the rest chunky. Added garlic, oregano and some
    Italian seasoning.

    I cut up the partially frozen chicken (breasts) into slices about 1/2
    inch thick. Seasoned with salt and pepper, sauteed them quickly in
    olive oil until lightly browned (set aside). I like using meats that
    aren't completely thawed because I can brown them w/o over cooking.
    After that I sautéed up some onion and kept it in the pan. Then I
    dumped my tomato mixture and the chicken in and continued cooking
    until the chicken was done (but not over done).

    I served this on a bed of whole wheat linguini. Hubby pronounced it
    delicious and said it tasted like spaghetti with chicken. <sigh>

    I love cooking with wine.
    Sometimes I even put it in the food.

    ===============================

    I think you did very well! That's what it's supposed to taste like.
    Pandora or Giusi will please correct me if I'm wrong, but "Cacciatore"
    means "hunter" and it was the dish that hunters cooked outside over an
    open fire.

    I learned that from the Italian lyric to a madrigal by Orlando
    deLassus. Hunters would take an onion and maybe some olive oil and
    tomatoes with them, pick whatever wild herbs they found growing, and
    cook one of the birds (pheasant, guinea hen) they caught to eat right
    away, before taking the rest of the catch home. I think whatever you
    put in that dish besides tomatoes onions and herbs would be fine. I
    think they also took wine!

    <lol> Can't satisfy everyone. :-) I personally love chicken in a
    marinara type sauce and it goes well served over veggies, pasta or rice
    imho.

    Good Job!

    Try an egg wash then dip into a 50/50 mix of Parmesan cheese & breadcrumbs
    before frying.

    It makes a nice coating to soak up the sauce....
