This appeared on the label of the canola oil that I always buy. Although the recipe calls for specific brands of ingredients, which I will put below, you can use any other brand. Also, since this recipe does not have any pork products or cheese in it, some one can always make this kosher by using kosher products. The recipe won't let me put this in the list of ingredients but you can also have chicken legs to the recipe. It's an and/or kind of thing.

I thought this was really good. I don't think I've ever tried Chicken Cacciatore before. The flavors seemed to blend well together. I, like Andi, sauteed the onion, pepper and mushrooms until crisp tender before adding to the dish. Cooked the chicken breast for exactly 40 minutes and they were perfect. This makes a lot of sauce. Served this over wheat Angle Hair pasta. Thanks Made for SSC Pet Parade.
Everyone enjoyed this dish. It was great served over spaghetti. I pan fried the chicken to brown it and then threw everything into a crockpot. I used both thigh meat and breast meat. The thigh meat was juicier and more flavorful in my opinion and I will just use thigh meat the next time I make this recipe.
Wonderful Chicken Cacciatore. One of my favorite dishes when we go out to eat, this was all of that, and more. I sub'd chicken thighs, they were on sale and I also cooked in my crockpot. With the hot weather I prefered not to heat the house anymore than necessary. Cooked about 4-5 hours. Wonderful flavor.
