How to make it

  • Sprinkle the chicken pieces with 1 teaspoon of each salt and pepper. Dredge the chicken pieces in the flour to coat lightly.
  • In a large heavy saute pan, heat the oil over a medium-high flame. Add the chicken pieces to the pan and saute just until brown, about 5 minutes per side. If all the chicken does not fit in the pan, saute it in 2 batches. Transfer the chicken to a plate and set aside. Add the bell pepper, and garlic to the same pan and saute over medium heat until the veggies are tender, about 5 minutes. Season with salt and pepper. Add the wine and Bay leaves and simmer until reduced by about half, about 3 - 5 minutes. Add the tomatoes with their juice, tomato paste, 1 teaspoon basil, and oregano and simmer a bit. Here is where you adjust the sauce; too thin cook down a bit and too thick add water. Make it your way.
  • Return the chicken pieces to the pan and turn them to coat in the sauce. Bring the sauce to a simmer. Continue simmering over medium-low heat until the chicken is just cooked through, about 30 minutes. Add the olives and mushrooms; simmer for a few minutes, stirring now and then.
  • Serve over cooked paste, garnish with chopped basil and Parmesan cheese.
