Ingredients

  • 3 Tbsp olive oil
  • 1 cup All Purpose Flour
  • 8 pieces chicken mix of thighs and breasts if desired
  • 2 Zucchini large diced
  • 1 medium onion diced (about 1 1/4 cup)
  • 1 cup button mushrooms quartered
  • 2 bell pepper large diced (red or yellow)
  • 2 summer squash seeds removed and large diced
  • 1/2 cup Chicken Broth
  • 28 oz can of Hunt's whole tomatoes crushed or diced, reserve 1/2 the liquid
  • 1 tsp dried thyme
  • salt and pepper

Instructions

  • Sprinkle the salt and pepper over each chicken piece. Dredge through the flour to coat.
  • In a large dutch oven, heat the olive oil over med-high heat. Add the chicken pieces to the pan and fry until brown, about 8 minutes per side. Work in two batches if necessary. Transfer the chicken to a plate lined with paper towels.
  • Reduce heat to medium. Reserve 1 tbsp of the oil liquid in the pan and throw away the rest. In the same pan, add the onion,peppers, garlic, and thyme. Saute until tender, about 4-5 minutes. Add the rest of the vegetables and cook for about 5 minutes. Add the tomatoes. Bring to a simmer. Add the chicken pieces back into the pan and sink them into the sauce. The sauce may not cover the chicken entirely. Continue simmering until the chicken is fully cooked, about 25-30 minutes.
  • Transfer the chicken to a plate. If a thicker sauce is desired, boil the sauce about 3-5 minutes. Spoon the sauce over the chicken and serve.

Notes

Before serving, I often pull the chicken pieces at the end and place them under the oven broiler for 5-10 minutes to make the skin crispy.
