DIRECTIONS

  • Wash, cut up pieces of chicken; pat dry with paper towel.
  • Season with 1 tsp.
  • salt; set aside.
  • In a large saucepan, heat oil and saute onions and garlic.
  • Add chicken pieces skin-side down and brown lightly.
  • Add the sweet peppers, tomato puree, basil, oregano, parsley, salt and pepper flakes.
  • Cover and simmer over low- medium heat on the stovetop for 1-1/2 hour.
  • Note: Usually, tomato puree suggests adding a can of water.
  • In this recipe, the water comes from the cooking peppers and chicken which dilutes the puree without additional liquid.
  • However, if sauce becomes too thick during cooking, add 1/2 can of water (or wine) a little at a time until its consistency is to your liking.
