It was the supermarket pack of on-the-bone free range chicken pieces, drumsticks, thighs and wings, that got me thinking about a long slow braise, something with a tomato's cheery red to colour a dim winter's day.
Cacciatora means hunter style, which in turn means this dish is extremely adaptable, just like all good hunters. Not being in the mood for mushrooms meant that they were dispensed with, but I did like Jamie Oliver's suggestion of green olives, sadly which, weren't to hand. Being no frills though, meant it was very child friendly.
Your choice of red or white wine shows favour to either the south or north of Italy. No oregano? How about some marjoram instead. Some capsicum or other vegetable won't upset things, just pop them in.
Perhaps the one thing that does offer an advantage is to use the best quality chicken you can afford. Not only is the texture and flavour notably superior, they tend to be less fatty, meaning a less oily result.
Rice is an easy side, but served on wet polenta, it would positively make a cold winter's night shine.
1.5kg chicken pieces, thighs, drumsticks and wings
salt & fresh ground pepper
2 onions, finely diced
4-6 cloves garlic, finely diced
250ml white wine
2 400g tins plum tomatoes, pulped
1 teaspoon dried oregano or marjoram
1 sprig rosemary
8 dried bay leaves
If using chicken wings, trim off the wing tip, season each chicken piece with salt and fresh ground pepper, then dredge in the plain flour.
In a large casserole dish, big enough to hold all the chicken, heat some olive oil and brown all the chicken pieces a few at a time and remove to a plate. In the same oil, gently sweat the onion and garlic until just turning brown, stirring often.
Turn up the heat, add the wine and boil until reduced by half, then add the plum tomatoes, dried oregano or marjoram, the sprig of rosemary and the bay leaves. Season with salt and fresh ground pepper. Bring to a boil, then slide in all the chicken pieces and any juices that have collected.
Pop into an oven set to 160c for 1.5 hours. When cooked, take out of the oven and skim off as much oil as possible. If the sauce is too thin, remove the chicken and boil until reduced to your liking. Serve with rice or wet polenta, sprinkled with some chopped parsley

In this article, we give a new characterization of contractions on Coach Outlet Store streams in the form of New Jordan Shoes 2020 a sound and complete representation theorem, and generalize this result to a wide Coach Outlet class of non well founded structures, first to infinite binary trees, then to final coalgebras of container functors. These results have important potential applications in functional programming, where Ray Ban Glasses coinduction and corecursion are successfully deployed to model continuous reactive systems, dynamic interactivity, signal processing, and other tasks that require flexible manipulation of non well founded data. Our representation Coach Handbags Clearance theorems provide a definition paradigm to compactly Yeezy Discount compute with such data and easily reason about them..
Actor Douglas Sheehan ("Knots Landing") is 71. Guitarist Ace Frehley (Kiss) is 69. Singer Sheena Easton is 61. I believe it. What if the purpose of each and every one of us is only to bless the earth, in word and deed? What might be the effect of each of us fulfilling this purpose every day of our lives? It costs us so little to test the idea and Yeezy Boost 350 the result could just prove we can do something Ray Ban Outlet right after all. Surely the deeds will follow the words.
