Robin's Meme Chicken Cacciatore

Recipe Category: Poultry
Recipe Preparation Level: easy
I am going to quote this recipe "exactly" as my little Italian grandmother, "Meme" wrote it for me. She wrote as if she was talking to me, so enjoy the humor as you cook! She'd get a little heavy handed with the wine! This original recipe is laminated and in my favorite cookbook in the kitchen. As a child, we always called this recipe "Kitchen Catch-a-tori".
(everything cut up real fine)
2 - large chicken fryers. Cut up real small, like I always do
1 - bunch shalots, green tops and all
2 - larger cans of tomatoes
3/4 - cup parsley
1 - large onion cut up fine
1 - real large bell pepper or 2 medium ones
3 - long stalks of celery cut up fine
Now, I use Italian Olive Oil. I use as much oil as it will take to fry everything. Not over done. Add about 3 real large cloves of garlic (or 4). So, place chicken which has been salted and peppered in hot grease and don'f fry it through! Just get it a little brown. Remove from fire. Place chicken in a large pot. Then you add onions, and only the top of the green onions, then celery and fry til its almost done. Oh, yes, and bell peppers. Then add garlic and fry, then add bottoms of shallots (the green part). You should add a little flour whle cooking onions and all of the vegetables. Now, when you think its done, add tomatoes and stir til the grease comes to top. Then you know its done. Add parsley. Then add about 1/2 teaspoon oregano, a "little" thyme, 1/2 teaspoon paprika, garlic (3 or 4 pods). Add a little water, like maybe 1 cup. Then turn down fire and simmer. Add about 1-1/2 cups of "Sauterne Wine". Now taste and see if you have enough of salt and pepper to your taste. Simmer for at least 3/4 or 1 hour. Then add chicken and when chicken is done it's ready to serve, which won't be too long. Other words, pour all that is in frying pan into the pot where chicken is. Add another 3/4 glass of wine. Serve over rice.
God Bless You, Meme!
