Joining Recipezaar has caused me to start going back through old recipes and discovering old favorites that have "gotten lost" through the years. This is an old one that I got from a friend after eating it at her house and enjoying it. Italian food is always enjoyed at my house.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Heat oil, brown chicken on each side for about 5 minutes, remove from pan and set aside.
  2. In a large pot break up the whole tomatoes, add the onions, tomato sauces, water and mushrooms; bring to a boil, turn down heat and add chicken and spices.
  3. Cook uncovered for about 2 hours or until chicken is done and sauce thickens.
  4. CROCKPOT- If you prefer, brown the chicken and put everything together into a crockpot to cook, but allow more time for cooking.
  5. This is good served with noodles- rigatoni or otherwise.

I was looking for a crockpot recipe and this was in a crockpot cookbook and didn't realize it was stove top till I printed it. No matter, it was very easy to do. I used more garlic and no cloves. Although onions weren't in the directions, I added a spring onion. This smelled so good cooking and we served it with brown rice. Everyone liked it. Glad I stumbled upon it! I will save the leftover sauce for another dish.

What a wonderful aroma from this dish! The spice combination was excellent and the resulting sauce of just the right thickness for pasta. I made this using fresh garlic and chopped onion (Onion is in the instructions but missing from the ingredient list)which I sauteed before adding the liquids. Served over fettucini--a very nice meal.

Awesome recipe that will be a part of my rotation. I always loved slow cooked pork in homemade tomato sauce, but the chicken was fantastic. The seasoning give the dish an exotic almost indian type of flavor. Nice job Trish!
