  • Brown chicken on both sides, about 5 minutes, working in batches, if needed. Remove chicken from pan and set aside. Add onion, carrots and celery to pan. Cook over medium heat until softened, about 3 minutes. Add garlic, thyme and oregano; cook 2 minutes, stirring frequently.

  • Stir in tomatoes and tomato paste. Add broth; bring to a boil; reduce heat and simmer 3 minutes.

  • Return chicken to pan. Cover and simmer on low heat 25 minutes or until chicken is no longer pink inside (165 degrees F internal temperature). If desired, remove chicken from pan and simmer sauce on high heat for a few minutes until slightly thickened. Serve over polenta, pasta or mashed potatoes.

Made this mostly following the recipe... I did wing it a bit and didn't really measure stuff. But it came out fantastic. My husband is a chef and he LOVED it. My 5 yo daughter had a friend over after school the next day and insisted I serve some leftover chicken as a snack. Haha guess it was a home run... Will serve again soon... Read More

Delicious! My family enjoyed this very much. My only change was in using dried thyme and oregano. It's easy enough to make too. Next time I will skin the chicken though. Read More

A bit too watery. Tastes like a bland version of chicken cacciatore without the delicious peppers. Read More
