RECIPE – Chicken Cacciatore


  • 6 chicken thighs
  • 3 chicken breast quarters
  • 2 TBSP olive oil
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 cup Italian breadcrumbs
  • 1 – 2 green peppers, sliced
  • 1 – 2 onions, sliced
  • 1 – 2 cloves garlic, sliced
  • 1 can (28 oz.) crushed tomatoes
  • 1 – 2 cups sliced mushrooms
  • 1 – 2 TBSP Italian seasoning
  • salt & pepper


Clean and dry all chicken pieces. Reserve skin on two thighs; remove from rest of chicken. Dip chicken pieces in egg and coat lightly with breadcrumbs. Pan fry on both sides in olive oil over medium-high heat.

When browned, move chicken to stock pot (or other large pan with tall sides). Add sliced peppers, onions and garlic. While on medium-low heat, add crushed tomatoes, salt, pepper and Italian seasoning.

Cover and let simmer for 2 – 3 hours, stirring occasionally.

In last half hour, add sliced mushrooms. Serve with fresh Italian bread.

  3. He’s so good we can even forgive him for bringing ‘pukka’
    into the English vocabulary. Since ingredients are thoroughly cooked over a long period of time, stirring is not
    recommended or the food will break apart. The recipes at Fearless Freezer Cooking is broken down into several categories that include Beef,
    Breakfast, Dessert, Main Dishes, Chicken, No Thawing Required,
    Pasta, Pork, and more.
