Chicken Cacciatore

I've been wanting to try this recipe from Sarah Foster ever since she made it a few years ago. So good and rich! Perfect with some whole wheat angel hair and a mixed salad. ACtually, after I made and posted this recipe (that I got from her Fresh Every Day cookbook), I went on the www linked above and found her blog which had a you tube video on it. so, you can go watch her make this very same dish

Chicken Cacciatore

8 oz button mushrooms, wiped clean, shorten the stems, halved
2 tbsp olive oil
2 tbsp sherry vinegar
s/p, 1 tbsp marjoram leaves

Mix the oil and vinegar as best you can, season the mushrooms (cap up) and toss to coat. Roast on a pan at 400 for 20 minutes turning 3 times during cooking process.

3 tbsp olive oil
6 chicken thighs

Cook the chicken in oil for about 5 minutes on each side. Remove and keep warm.

1 small onion, diced
2 cloves garlic, minced
1/2 cup dry white wine
1 cup chicken broth
2 can petite diced tomatoes

Saute onions till translucent. Add in garlic for one minute. Add in wine and let reduce at a boil for about 3 minutes. Add in broth and tomatoes and let simmer for 15 minutes.

Return chicken to pan and let cook until chicken is done, about 20 minutes. Add in mushrooms and 1 tbsp marjoram and let cook for one minute.
