“This recipe takes just 15 minutes to prepare and 50 minutes of cooking time, but tastes like it took a lot longer. The recipe calls for chicken thighs because the meat is more tender than chicken breasts. You can use chicken breast if you prefer.” - by ellenmoriah
Original recipe yields 6 servings
- Heat olive oil in a skillet over medium heat, and brown the chicken thighs in the hot oil, about 5 minutes per side. Set the chicken aside.
- In the same skillet, cook and stir the onion and mushrooms until the mushrooms have softened, about 10 minutes. Mix in the garlic, and cook until fragrant, 1 to 2 more minutes.
- Pour in the tomatoes with their juice, white wine, orange juice, rosemary, salt, and black pepper, and stir until thoroughly combined.
- Stir in the chicken pieces and any accumulated juices, cover the skillet, and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium-low, and simmer until the chicken is tender and no longer pink inside, 30 to 40 minutes.

The ora..." See morenge juice mixed with white wine, tomatoes, and rosemary is what gives this dish a different taste than other Cacciatore recipes. It's also not intended to be a thick "hearty" sauce. Add a little tomato paste to give it some body, but it's supposed to be a "runny" sauce. The pasta or rice will soak some of it up, but I should have listed in the instructions that it's a good idea to have a nice loaf of bread to dip in the sauce as well."
"This is a fabulous recipe and so easy to make. Thanks for sharing, Ellen. The only change I made was to use dry Marsala instead of white wine and I thickened with a roux at the end.
