"A simple and easy recipe. The sauce is very flavorful and the chicken thighs turn out moist and fall-apart tender every time!"

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Mar. 24, 2014

"Very good. I love chicken cacciatore. This is a great way to make it, keeps the stovetop and kitchen cool. Great any time but think it would be really nice to make in the Summer. Thanks for sharing."

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Dec. 8, 2013

"I cut this down to only make 2 servings and made it in our 1 quart crockpot today. I used chicken breasts to make it lighter. The meat just feel apart. My husband really enjoyed it. This dish pairs really well with brown rice."
