Oranges and olives are elegantly paired in this different but delicious dish from Aney Chatterton. "The chicken is marinated, then cooked slowly in a flavorful sauce, so it stays moist," notes the Soda Springs, Idaho cook. To trim prep time, ask your butcher to cut up and skin the chicken for you.
"MY MOTHER-IN-LAW said she devised this recipe when her children were growing up and schedules were hectic. It was a favorite Sunday dish because it could be cooking while the family was at church. When they came home, it didn't take long to finish the preparations and put dinner on the table."
I can't remember were this recipe came from, but I've been making it for several years. Everyone who tries it enjoys it. When the chicken is done cooking, it's so tender it falls off the bone.—Mrs. Patricia Weir, Chilliwack, British Columbia
“My slow cooker comes in so handy during the haying and harvest seasons,” writes Joan Airey from her farm in Rivers, Manitoba. “We’re so busy that if supper isn’t prepared before I serve lunch, it doesn’t seem to get done on time. This recipe is hearty, delicious and fuss-free.”
I've been married for 42 years and have 3 children and 2 grandchildren. I love to collect cookbooks and try new recipes. This dish is delicious, easy and good when served with rice and a side vegetable.—Edith Holliday, Flushing, Michigan
My husband and I operate a very busy farm. There are days when there's just no time left for cooking. It's really nice to be able to come into the house at night and smell this chicken cacciatore meal simmering—dinner is a simple matter of dishing it up. It's very easy to make, but it's also special enough to serve company. —Aggie Arnold-Norman, Liberty, Pennsylvania
Kat Sadi of San Luis Obispo, California sent the recipe for this tasty meal-in-one supper with chicken and vegetables seasoned with herbs. “The best thing about this dish is that you have only one pot to clean,” she confirms.
