Thanks for your comment. Don't forget to share!

I love quick and easy recipes. Mr Food I hsve been trying some of these to get out of the normal foods that we eat daily. Thank you for sharing. Karen

Made this for dinner the other night and it was very good, the flavor was awesome. The only problem I had with recipe was the sauce was very thin , almost like a thin stew. Maybe I used too much spaghetti sauce. I used 2 16 oz. jars of homemade sauce. I know the recipe called for a 28 oz. jar, but I didn't think 4 oz. would make that much difference. Maybe It did.

Some people are allergic to wine because of its sulfite content, what would you use as a substitute?

Hi! There is no wine in this recipe. But if you need a substitute in general, the Test Kitchen suggests using chicken or beef broth. Hope this helps!

I would swap out some of the broth and use red wine. You do know that the alcohol cooks out within 15 minutes. I know some of you mentioned in the past about not using alcohol but it does cook out. It won't tempt an alcoholic!!

This is very good, but next time I will add a little Italian Seasonings to kick it up some. Thanks for the recipe!

I was looking for the nutritional information as well. But this recipe is delicious. Very easy to make and the whole family loves it.

Where is the nutritional information?

So good... I shared with the entire neighborhood.

This was really good and so easy!

I made this recipe a few days ago. I was surprised at how much it turned out to be! The mushrooms added a lot of water to the recipe. Also, I exchanged the beef broth for chicken broth. It was delicious. Plenty left over for freezing!

My family won't even enter the kitchen if there are mushrooms in a recipe. What can I substitute?

try diced eggplant..good flavor and hearty,and it 's healthy!

BIG WOW! will use eggplant in this recipe... usually use squash (zuc) to sub. bet this will also go great on rice or ziti.

Only use female egg plant

Added green peppers..and fire roasted diced tomatoes with garlic.....delicious...omitted beef broth...was not needed...don't like beef flavor with chicken.....will make again...served mine with rice and edamame.

Made this recipe yesterday and it was ( The consistency of the sauces was creamy like a stew but all the flavor of a good Italian dish. I added a red pepper with the green pepper along with some extra Italian seasonings. Daughter gave me an A+ for this one. Great dish.

I cannot find a way to add this recipe to my recipe box.

Just click on save to recipe box on top of recipe... you will ask to sign in with either your login or login with facebook. Good luck.

Super great! Four teenagers gave it rave reviews! I took out the mushrooms (sadly) and added basil. I wondered about the beef broth with a chicken recipe, but it soooo worked! Thanks!

I have used all chicken parts, legs, thighs, breast, in crock pot, It was very good. BJH

This is very similar to my mother's recipe except we never used green pepper and we add a glass of red wine to the sauce as it's cooking. Love it!

I tried some new spices for my cacciatore: cumin, marjoram, ginger, basil & garlic, with chicken breast cubes lightly browned beforehand in some oil with the garlic, and one can of tomato paste with 2 cups of water, and let it cook down slowly in a warm oven. I did not need to add bell peppers, as I have an allergy to them, too. It still had that peppery taste. Unique and delicious! Women get your free cookbook at, then go to and leave a comment! I'd love to hear from you!

Cumin seems to give food a muddy taste does not belong with Italian recipes ,ginger just does not go with a dish like this either better choices would be oregano and/or basil

This recipe sounds great. One thing, my husband can't eat green peppers. What would be a good substitute??? Thank you Pam

You can add sliced green olives instead of green peppers delicious with dishes like this
