- 5Add the garlic and mushrooms and sauté for another 3-4 minutes, or until the mushrooms are wilted and cooked through.
- 6Stir in the wine and tomatoes and simmer for a few minutes until cooked down somewhat. Then stir in the water or stock, herbs and salt and pepper to taste.
- 7Reduce heat to medium-low and simmer for 20-30 minutes, or until the chicken is cooked through and tender.
- 8Adjust seasoning to taste and serve with polenta or roasted potatoes.
- 10Coniglio alla Cacciatora: use rabbit instead of chicken.
- 11Other possible additions: chopped bell peppers, chopped carrots, chopped celery, chopped oregano, bay leaves, juniper berries, dried porcini mushrooms, black olives, capers, 3 or 4 chopped anchovies.
- 12Use boneless, skinless chicken breast for a lower fat version.
