This is probably one of my favorite recipes. Olives and pearl onions make it a little different from the traditional dish.—R. K Richardson, Indianapolis, Indiana

"I made a slight deviation, due to ingredient availability in the house and timesaving, I used a Tablespoon of prepared pesto in lieu of the dried basil, oregano, thyme and bay. I believe most all of those ingredients were in the pesto. The dish was easy to prepare and absolutely delicious. I will definitely make this again as everyone in the family enjoyed it."

"This is the best Chicken Cacciatore I have ever eaten. The only change that I made was to leave out the mushrooms."
