Grilled Chicken Cacciatori

This is one of my all time favorite, soul warming, pronto from the kitchen and no one complains. I make a big batch of this Cacciatori. The recipe is just easy as all hell, loves to be improved on (add more olives, onion, garlic, rosemary, mushrooms, capers, grilled sausage, or take it 100% vegetarian with the addition of grilled eggplant-zucchini-red peppers-mushrooms)…oh, a good slug of red wine takes it over the top ….

2 bottles OR more TWO OLIVE SALSA

dash of red wine (drink rest of bottle)

hand full of cleaned button mushrooms

4 grilled chicken breasts marinated in white wine OR grilled thighs marinated in white wine

One box of pasta, your call (penne, bow tie, fettuccine, etc) cooked and drained (tossed with just a little olive oil)

Toss the salsa, wine, mushrooms, and cooked chicken together.  Either bake in the oven (350 for 30 minutes) or sautee all together……Plate the pasta, put the sauce on top….kiss with fresh grated Parmesan cheese….serve.  This is also the perfect leftover food!
