Oven Chicken Cacciatore

Chicken cacciatore with carrots, potatoes and
 sausage makes this a great one-pot complete 
dinner. It's a family favorite pot luck recipe 
from my nieces. It's so easy to put everything
 together and just pop it in the oven. 
I love dinners like this.
Everything is prepped ahead of time and it makes
 your whole house smell wonderful.
You can use any chicken pieces you want,
or use a whole cut-up chicken and increase
 the other ingredients depending on how many
 people you are feeding.
 No need to measure the seasonings,
just be generous.
 Add the cut-up vegetables.
 Combine the tomato sauce and water.
 Pour the sauce over.
Cover tightly with foil and bake for
1 hour at 350 then 1 hour at 275.
The chicken and sausage stewing in the 
tomato sauce gives it lots of flavor.
Here it is using a whole cut-up chicken.
This is how I usually make it. Plenty of
leftovers for us. A great fall
and winter dinner

Oven Chicken Cacciatore
2 large chicken breast halves 
or cut-up pieces, skinned
4 Italian sausage links, cut in half
4 carrots, peeled
4 potatoes, scrubbed not peeled
1 L yellow, red, or orange pepper
1 t Italian seasoning
1 t salt
1/2 t pepper
1  L can (16-oz) tomato sauce
1 can water
Lay the chicken in a 9x13 casserole. Sprinkle with 
about half of the seasonings. No need to measure.
 Add the sausage. Cut the vegetables into large 
chunks; add to the casserole. Sprinkle with the 
remaining seasonings. Combine the tomato sauce
 and water; pour over all and cover tightly with  
foil. Bake for 1 hour at 350 then reduce to 275
 and bake another 1 hour. To make serving easier; 
remove the bone from the chicken breast and
cut in half. Serve 1/2 chicken breast with
 sausage, vegetables, and plenty of sauce.
....4 servings....


  1. This one caught my eye! Different then the version I grew up that my hubby hates, so thinking he will like your version much better! It makes me hungry just looking at it! Ty!

  2. Could you make this in the crock-pot?

  3. I'm sure you could. Probably cook on low for 5-6 hours.

  4. This looks really good...Will have to try it myself. Popped over from No Minimalist Here, Open House Party.

  5. Oh, I love this Chicken! I think I can make it on my French pot, La Cocotte, Staub...which is new and I haven't made much in it yet! Thanks for the récipe sweet lady.
    Big hugs,
