The Ospidillo Cafe Chicken Cacciatore

Does your family love chicken like mine does? This is my clan's all-round favorite dish of any sort. The original recipe came from Mr. Food (Art Ginsberg) before I messed with it a bit to suit our tastes. It's easy, fairly cheap, feeds 6, sticks to your ribs, and can be prepared easily in 90 minutes. Once you have it going, you just monitor it and make your spaghetti to serve it over (you could serve it over rice). I make this chicken cacciatore at least once a month and they'd be happier around here if I made it once a week! It is much better if the skin is left on while cooking (chicken doesn't get leathery that way) -- you can pull it off (it practically falls off) when you serve it if you wish. Also, if you use plain table salt, cut it back to 1/2 a teaspoon. Sometimes I use whole chickens, cut up, (without the backs, necks, and organs, which I save for making stock), and sometimes just legs and thighs -- it really doesn't matter. We often take this recipe camping, making up the spaghetti ahead of time and storing it in zip-lock bags in the cooler. One final variation -- you can substitute an equivalent amount of fresh Roma tomatoes instead of the canned ones for a "brighter" flavor but, if you do, add 6 ounces of V-8 juice to the recipe. Enjoy, my friends!
