Mushroom Chicken Cacciatore Recipe

Jane Bone from Cape Coral, Florida gives an Italian treatment to chicken by slow-cooking it in a zesty tomato sauce and serving it over spaghetti. "It's great for company because it frees up time to spend with guests. Toss a salad and you're ready to eat," she suggests.
