Mushroom Chicken Cacciatore

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.

    We served this for a large dinner, it was fantastic. The chicken was moist. I used a can of tomato paste to thicken the sauce and a whole head of roasted garlic. Goes great with the French loaves recipe on this site!

    Tried this receipe tonight, and it was ok, the sauce was a little thin, wondering if tomato paste should be added to thicken it up a little, other than that it was good, will make again. thanksBrensmom
