The Perfect Chicken Cacciatore
This is a favorite recipe that has been in my family for decades. It's a recipe that we often make for special family events and immediately calls to mind the best things in life: friends, family, and time together. Absolutely delicious any time of year, and particularly on a cold winter day!

  • 6 Tbsp. olive oil                                                                       
  • 1 cup diced onions
  • 1 cup red & green peppers, diced            
  • 3 tsp. salt
  • 1 tsp. pepper                                                          
  • ½ tsp. ground allspice
  • 2-3 large cloves garlic, minced                   
  • 2 bay leaves
