 Ingredients List

  • 3 lb Chicken in serving pieces
  • Salt and pepper
  • Flour
  • 1/4 c Butter
  • 1/4 c Olive oil (not virgin)
  • 1 Garlic cl, minced
  • 2 tb Flour
  • 1 lb Can tomatoes
  • 1 c Dry white wine
  • 6 oz Can sliced muchrooms


Sprinkle chicken pieces with salt and pepper and roll in flour. Heat
butter and oil in lg skillet. Add chicken and brown on all sides. Remove
from skillet and place pieces in single layer inn a shallow baking dish.
Add garlic to skillet and saute till soft. Stir flour into pan drippings,
add tomatoes broken up with juice and wine and stir briskly over med-high
heat until sauce bubbles and thickens. Add mushrooms.

Pour sauce over chicken. Bake in a preheated 350 oven for 40 to 45 min or
till chicken is tender. Serve sprinkled with finely chopped chives.

Note: We (myself and five siblings) all loved this dish when we were kids.
It was only when I grew up and made it myself that I realized what a
sophisticated yet easy dish it was. My mom always doubled the recipe to
feed our large gang and I think it freezes good as well. No idea where the
recipe originated, though it more than likely was taken from a 60's copy of
Women's Day magazine.
