I love making this meal! It smells so good and tastes even better. I love how simple this recipe is and how great it looks! I’m not sure about the origins of the recipe. I got the recipe from my mom when I left for college. She nicely typed up a bunch of family favorites plus a few extras for me. So, Mom, where did the recipe come from? Is that not the biggest plate of food you’ve ever seen? I could only eat half of the chicken. Yummy!!

Chicken Cacciatore


2 TB Olive Oil

2-3 chicken breasts

1 onion sliced and separated into rings

2 garlic cloves, minced

salt and pepper to taste

1 can diced tomatoes

1 small can tomato sauce

1 tsp dried basil

1 TB dried parsely

spaghetti noodles


Brown chicken in olive oil over medium heat, salt and pepper to taste. Add onions and garlic to pot and let cook a few minutes until slightly tender. Pour tomatoes and sauce over chicken. Fill the tomato sauce can half way with water and add to pan. Add parsley and basil. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat to low. Cover and simmer about 30 minutes.

Add pasta to boiling water and remove cover on chicken mixture, turn up heat to medium low. This will help the mixture to reduce. Enjoy!

Garlic Bread


Hoggie Rolls


garlic powder

Parmesan cheese



Slice hoggie rolls open. Spread with butter, sprinkle garlic powder on bread, then Parmesan cheese, followed by paprika. Bake in 400 degree oven for 3-5 minutes. I also broil mine for 3 minutes or less.
