VERY VERY GOOD, The best Chicken Cacciatore that I have ever made. I served it with Rice, as we had, had pasta several times lately, It was very good with rice. Thank you Sharlene for sharing the recipe.

This is a fabulous (and very hearty) sauce. I used it on angel hair pasta, cuz I didnt have any linguini. In step 7 I actually only cooked it for about 20 minutes, and then the other I did for the full 40. I only used 1/2 cup red wine, and it was delish! THanks so much!!

Very good recipe. I added 1 tsp of crushed red pepper to the recipe since I like my food spicy. Mmm mmm delicious
