I love my mum's version of chicken cacciatore with mushrooms instead of onions and peppers. This was my favourite meal she cooked when I was growing up, and now that I am cooking for my own family, it is one of their favourites as well. Don't leave out the wine or brandy from this recipe, they are key ingredients.
Totally yummy. I used Marsala Wine instead of Brandy (didn't have any) and bone-in thighs. Research on the Internet recommended the Marsala as a substitute. I have not made Chicken Cacciatore in YEARS but this recipe will change that. BTW, I mixed together the liquid ingredients the day before and stored in the refrigerator. They really bonded!!

Yummy stuff! The seasoning are a little different than from what I usually make and this is better. My usual recipe has oregano. A keeper, thanks! - 26 Aug 2011 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
Thank you, I've been looking for this recipe, I have been looking for this since i saw Lydia do it like this but she added a little curry powder. So I do also...the flour also helps to thicken the sauce.... - 12 Feb 2012 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
