I used pasta shells instead of elbow; i like either one! Grew up w/my dad always making it with shells…so there’s that memories based “thing”; just like Bobby has with his mum 🥰 In place of the soy sauce in Bobby Deen’s recipe, I use a tablespoon each of Better than Bouillon Roasted Garlic base, Better than Bouillon Beef base, Better than Bouillon onion base, 😍 AND much more garlic; via fresh minced, the bouillon & garlic powder. Delish‼️😋 Sure it might emit through our skin 🤣 but we love that sh💢t and it’s healthy. 🧄 Also, “if” my tomato sauce is too acidic 🍅, I add a dash (or 2…TASTE & TASTE) of sugar, couple knobs of butter & drizzle with some EVOO. Taste throughout to adjust to your liking.
Other changes I did was Hunt’s Diced fire roasted tomatoes w/garlic
I not only double linked recipe, but we use more salad dressing too, or mayo…if preferred, with a little blast of honey mustard, dash of vinegar, salt, pepper, little 🥄 sugar; taste to adjust to your preferences. And a lot of onion 😉

My recipe comes from my dad 🤣 people serve it with pasta and some with mashed potatoes…so I’ve read Our preference, again…probably childhood thing, which, in turn, I created my own kids’ that childhood “thing” 🤭 sense memory stuff? We prefer smooth penne. https://dawnspitfire.wordpress.com/2013/09/08/simple-chicken-cacciatore
Or I recommend following the recipe in video below 😉 … I was too lazy (truth 👉 tired and we’re under a heat advisory – 115°) 😜 to add the parsley 🍃🌿🌱 also, for balance, sometimes more than others, depending on tomatoes (acidity of tomatoes 🍅 especially if you’re stuck with cannned) etc., I add a dollop of butter, pinch of sugar and more seasonings – GARLIC 😍 Taste, taste, taste…throughout. 👉 Remember “salt,fat,acid,heat” 🌶
Thats my mother’s handwriting (she’s gone) & to clarify a couple things…chicken = any parts you prefer. We always did a mix of white & dark meat. Remove skin.
Pasta = we always used penne.
And where it says “small can of water” = the tomato paste can.
Till done = approximately 90 minutes
BTW…me and my sister are in disagreement about mushrooms in it. I clearly remember my dad putting mushrooms in it. She’s adamant he didn’t ….
Can’t go by it not being written down. My mother wrote it, not my dad.
*added later- my sister called my twin in Yuma AZ & he said “yes, it has mushrooms”. With my sister being a Taurus. …she’s standing her ground no matter what anyone says.
SO ADD GARLIC & MUSHROOMS
Cacciatore Dish – Cacciatore means “hunter” in Italian. In cuisine, alla cacciatora refers to a meal prepared “hunter‑style”…
Now…I only make it when I have all the ingredients I prefer 🥰
Went off script…as usual 🤭 but not much, just with more seasonings and more cheeses 🧀 also as usual, me & my daughter split one 😉 they’re filling!
We like…no we LOVE coconut milk or COCONUT CREAM 😍 in ours; only ‘about’ a 1/4 cup. I save the rest in container in fridge…for people like me 🤭 who can’t handle the heat 🌶🥵 to drizzle more over my own dish 🥥 I tried yogurt (which I marinated my chicken in all day, in fridge, with seasonings), but simply love coconut milk 🥛 😋 That and I make enough for 5 people, along with leftovers 😉 I use skinless boneless thighs myself 🐔 Note: I don’t always have every ingredient I’d like to have, but I have what it takes to “make it work” 🥰 OH and I used a combination of fresh chopped tomatoes 🍅 & tomato sauce this time 🥫 I also make this with bone-in chicken pieces, photos below 😁
