Oven baked Chicken Cacciatora

We woke up to a frosty sunny morning. Car was really iced and the kids had so much fun while inside it….looking at mammy outside in the cold, trying to scrap ice off the windows…there were tears as well because the “igloo” was being destroyed. Late for school too…Anyhow the day really justifies having the oven on so I’ve decided to adapt my dad’s “pollo alla cacciatora”. It is quite a frugal meal as you can use cheaper cuts of meat if like me you don’t like chicken breasts.Hope you enjoy it!

-red and green peppers
