Chicken Cacciatore

READY IN: 2hrs 15mins
Recipe by mermaidmagic

My grandmother's recipe. I only changed the type of chicken. I prefer using tasty meat that doesn't need the bone/skin so much for flavor. My grandmother used a whole small chicken, but picking the bones out of this dish was a huge pain in the neck. I also use yellow and orange peppers for color, but she liked red.

VERY, VERY, Tasty, we really enjoyed this cacciatore very much, served it with spaghetti squash, and a green salad as we are watching our carbs. I used boneless, skinless chicken thighs,yellow bell peppers, Home canned tomatoes that I crushed with my hand blender, cooked for a little over 1 hour, very tender. Thank you so much for the recipe which I will be making again.
