Weeknight Chicken Cacciatore
Great chicken cacciatore is familiar, hearty, and distinctive. How about speedy, too?
Why This Recipe Works
To turn a braised dish of bone-in chicken parts into a quick weeknight meal, we called on boneless, skinless chicken breasts. Browning them, along with meaty portobello mushrooms, created flavorful fond. Onions, red peppers, and plenty of garlic and fresh herbs came next, and deglazing the pan with red wine added even more depth. We finished cooking the chicken in the bubbling sauce (rounded out with chicken broth and diced tomatoes) to let all the flavors blend.
