Simple Chicken Cacciatore
After being delayed in Connecticut for a few days, I'm finally back home in Pennsylvania. Unfortunately, my car didn't make it back with me. It's currently at my father's house until we can come up with a plan to sell it. Foregoing the necessary repairs was a difficult choice to make, especially since that car was the first thing I ever fully-owned outright, but it didn't make sense to me to sink that much money into a car that was inevitably going to need more repairs.
Now I get to spend time researching new cars... Fun, right?
Sure, being stuck in Connecticut was frustrating and inconvenient, but it could have been worse. I was fortunate to have the hospitality and generosity of my parents and the company of their new cockapoo puppy.
Cuddling with Chloe certainly lessened the sting of the car situation.
And so did my stepmother's cooking. She always spoils me with great food when I'm there, and this time was no exception.
Although we didn't have her Chicken Cacciatore this time around, it is one of my favorite meals to have when I visit. I've been sitting on the recipe for a while and thought it was appropriate to share it with you all now. Call it somewhat of a tribute to my parents for all they've done for me, especially over the past few days.
My stepmother usually serves this with fettucine, but you can see that Stephen and I served it over a combination of penne and rotini (to finish up two nearly-empty boxes of pasta). What you serve the Chicken Cacciatore with is completely up to you.
I hope you enjoy this dish as much as I do! :)
