  1. This is now my favorite cacciatore. I amended recipe to make it in my electronic pressure cooker (cut recipe in 1/2). I reduced the wine & broth back abit & used 1 cup of pasta sauce, it was the perfect amt of liquid vs meat/vegys. My chicken thighs were boneless/skinless so I used 1 1/4 lb. I found it abit oily/fatty so next time I'll cut back the butter &/or oil. Used essence spice on the chicken & sub'd pitted italian olives for the black. Fabulous flavours, thanks so much for sharing.
  2. This may have been user error, but we had way too much liquid (even after leaving out the second broth ingredient) and ended up leaving the lid off some. We also cooked the noodles in with it for the last 30 minutes. It was VERY good though. Very tasty and we will definitely make again with a few revisions.
  3. This is a delicious recipe. I am a stay at home mom but put this on before I head out the door on the days I take the kids to the park and it's so yummy after a hard day of playing :)
  4. Only once we'd shopped for the recipe, did I read it RIGHT through and find it was a crock pot recipe. I don't own a crock pot! So I cooked it the way we cook when we don't, in a large lidded wok for about 45 on the stove top. It was easy, tasty, tomatoey, full of veggies and very good over pasta.
