Comforting Chicken Cacciatore

This recipe has been in my family for a long time. I remember my grandmother making it on special occasions. In those days, chicken was a treat, and we relished every bite—especially if Grandmother cooked it!

    Almost - but not quite - as tasty as it is comforting.
