Easy Chicken Cacciatore Recipe (That the kids will eat)
I got this recipe well over 10 years ago from a free local newspaper, it is so easy to make, and everyone in our family eats it, including our picky eaters:
1 Tb Olive Oil
6 Chicken Drumsticks
1 15 oz can of Tomato Sauce
1 envelope package of Good Seasonings Italian Seasoning (Generic is fine)
1 16 oz package of Farfalle pasta (Bowties)
Brown chicken pieces in oil. Add Tomato Sauce and Italian Seasoning. Cover. Simmer for an hour, or until chicken is thoroughly cooked.
Cook pasta according to directions on box.Toss cooked ingredients in a pasta serving dish, add Parmesan or Romano cheese, enjoy.
Note: make sure not to cook this on high heat or it will burn, low/medium works great. And even though it does not look like a lot of sauce, it really is enough. In fact, the original recipe called for an even smaller can of tomato sauce, but that was not enough for us. You could even try this with 1/2 packet of the seasoning, but we like it full force, lol, so I use a whole packet.
Also: You can use any chicken pieces that you like, but I like to use the drumsticks, even though I only eat white meat because it is what the guys in my house like the best, plus I can get a package of them on sale for around $1, but sometimes I do add one chicken breast in there for me. You can also use any pasta that you like, we are just used to the bowties with this recipe since I always make it this way.
