Chicken Cacciatore

Here is an interesting Fact - 38% of the food available for retail sale becomes waste.  This percentage grows higher when the household sector is included.  (taken from Draft Regional Rood System Strategy Summary October 2010 by Metro Vancouver)

Chicken Cacciatore

Serve with a salad or stir-fry vegetables

Serves 6

1 large onion, chopped
1 clove garlic, minced
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
4-6 chicken breast halves, skins removed

1 cup mushrooms, sliced
1 bay leaf
2 teaspoon dried oregano
1 teaspoon salt
¼ teaspoon dried rosemary, crushed
Salt and pepper to taste

In a large skillet (which has a lid) heat 1 tablespoon oil over medium high heat. Add chicken breasts and brown on both sides about 5 minutes. Remove chicken from skillet and set aside. Heat remaining 1 tablespoon oil in skillet and add onions and garlic. Cook until tender about 7 minutes.
