Chicken Cacciatore

This is one of my favourite italian dish , not only that they’re easy , but they also taste really good . On top of chicken marsala , this is my next choice for home made italian meal ! Not going to say too much of anything , the ingredients are simple , nothing to complicated , and most of us , would have it on hand already !!

You need :

6 chicken thighs , or 4 chicken thighs and 2 breasts , i prefer dark meat , they taste better than white in my opinion

flour , salt and pepper

Wash chicken , pat dry and then sprinkle with salt and pepper , and smoked paprika , and then dredge on all purpose flour . Heat olive oil in a skillet , and brown the chicken 5 minutes on each side . Then remove and set aside .

1 large onion , chopped

1 large red bell pepper , chopped

5 garlic , minced

3/4 cup of white wine

1 cup of chicken broth

1 – 28 oz can of diced tomatoes , with its juice

1 1/2 tsp. of dried oregano

salt and pepper

basil

1 . In the same skillet you use for the chicken , add little more olive oil and then add onion , garlic and red bell pepper , saute for 5 minutes . Then add the white wine , simmer until it evaporated about 3 minutes , then add chicken broth , salt pepper , oregano and diced tomatoes into the skillet . Bring to boil . Return the chicken into the skillet , let it cook for 30 minutes or until chicken are cooked through . Make sure you flip the chicken few times , so it doesn’t stick on the pan .

Chicken Marsala w/ Mascarpone

This is something that i tried , i went browsing not too long ago and found this marsala recipe . The chicken marsala that i usually cook is awesome , and i love the taste . But i thought i should give this one a try since it was a recipe from a real italian chef , Giada de Laurentiis . So i figured it should be good ..

Well .. i can’t say that it’s bad either , but this one though was def. richer than the regular chicken marsala i cook . I personally love the regular one , without the cheese . But anyway , i am going to post the recipe here ..

You need :

2 lbs of chicken thighs , boneless

salt and pepper

1 large onion , chopped

5 cloves of garlic , minced

1 lb of mushroom , sliced

1 cup of marsala wine

2 tbsp. of dijon mustard

1 cup of marscapone cheese

parsley

1. Salt and pepper the chicken , and cook until brown on both side , about 4 minutes on each side . Set aside .

2. In the same skillet , cook the chopped onion for 2 minutes , add garlic and mushroom , cook about 12 minutes until juices evaporated .

3. Add marsala wine , and cook until it reduced in half about 5 minutes . Then add dijon and mascarpone .

4. Return the chicken into the skillet , and simmer for 10 minutes . Salt to your preference .

5. Sprinkle with chopped fresh parsley .
