A delicious dish I made so many times. I served with risotto sprinkle with fresh grated Parmesan cheese, green salad and a glass of wine. If risotto is not your liking spaghetti or fettuccine as the recipe suggested.
2 pounds chicken breasts, legs and thighs
Salt and pepper
1 tablespoon butter
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 clove garlic, minced
1 large onion, chopped
1 large green pepper, seeded and chopped
1 canned whole pimento, chopped
1 1-pound can whole tomatoes, drained and coarsely chopped
1 tablespoon tomato paste
1 tablespoon chopped fresh oregano leaves or 1 teaspoon dried
1 tablespoon chopped fresh marjoram leaves or 1 teaspoon dried
1 tablespoon chopped fresh thyme, or 1 teaspoon dried
1 cup dry red wine
2 cups sliced mushrooms
1/2 pound spaghetti or fettuccine, cooked and drained
Dredge chicken pieces in mixture of flour, salt and pepper. Melt butter with olive oil in large heavy skillet. Stir in garlic and cook briefly before adding chicken pieces. Brown chicken on one side, then turn meat and add onion and green pepper. Cook until chicken is browned and vegetables are tender. Stir in pimento, tomatoes, tomato paste, oregano, marjoram, thyme and wine. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Cover and simmer over low heat 45 minutes. Add mushrooms and simmer about 30 minutes longer, until chicken is very tender. Served with hot spaghetti 0r risotto. Sprinkle with Parmesan cheese if desired.
