Chicken Cacciatore

Mmmm I love this easy chicken recipe. you can almost add anything but there are a few basics that make it a Cacciatore, A traditional Italian dish you serve with any type of pasta. I think this is a warming meal in winter as well as a relaxed summer dish served with a side salad it makes great out door food!
It may be a traditional Italian dish but can be very easily adapted to be at home in Bulgaria. 

Fry light or Olive oil
Mushrooms sliced & chopped
Onion chopped
Pepper any type chopped
Garlic head crushed & chopped
Mushrooms chopped
Carrots x 4 diced
Chicken breast, 1 per person, diced
Large jar or can of chopped Tomatoes
Pepper, ground black
2 tsp Oregano
Bay leaf
3/4 cup Red wine
You can also add, black olives, ham & mozarela cheese.

Over medium heat in a large skillet. Brown chicken on all sides in fry light or
hot oil, about 10 minutes. Remove chicken. Add chopped onion, green pepper, mushrooms and garlic. Sauté until onion is tender. Mix in the carrots. Stir in tomatoes, wine, oregano, salt, pepper, and bay leaf. Add chicken back to sauce and bring to a boil. Reduce heat, cover, and simmer for about 45 minutes, or until chicken is tender. Discard bay leaf and serve with spaghetti or other pasta.
You can also serve this with a side salad & roast potatoes.
