The Monday Recipe Blog

Hello, and happy Monday to you!  This blog features Lois Elaine Mueller's recipes every Monday. Lois' heyday was in the 1950's and 1960's, and her children swear she was the best cook that ever lived. Many baby boomers will remember these mouth-watering recipes, and these dishes are just as tasty today as they were in the sixties.

Remember Chicken Cacciatore?  It was wildly popular in the '60's, and still tasty today!  Here is Lois' recipe for Chicken Cacciatore for Four....

Lois Elaine's Chicken Cacciatore:

2 1/2 pounds frying chicken (pieces)
1/4 c. flour
1 t. salt
1/4 t. pepper
1/4 c. salad oil (vegetable, canola, etc)
14 1/2 oz. can of tomatoes
6 oz. can of tomato paste
1/2 c. chopped onion
1/4 c. chopped green peppers
4 oz. can of mushrooms plus the liquid
1 clove garlic, crushed
1/2 c. water
1/4 t. thyme
1 bay leaf

Dip chicken in flour, salt and papper mixture.  Brown in oil in a skillet. Combine remaining ingredients, stirring to break the tomatoes.  Pour over chicken. Cover and simmer for 30 minutes.  Uncover and simmer for 30 minutes longer. Remove chicken and remove and discard the bay leaf.  Thicken the sauce and serve over rice or noodles.
