Chicken Cacciatore “Pronto”

I went to the library the other day and was relatively surprised to realize that they have a large selection of cookbooks available for checkout. DUH! Cook. Book. Library. Ok, so maybe sometimes I’m a little slow on the uptake folks.

I sat on the floor, happy as a clam perusing the shelves, completely unaffected by the reproachful looks shot at me between the stacks by the librarians. :) One of the books I ended up checking out was The Best of Cooking Light. No Thank You Boy helped me choose Chicken Cacciatore “Pronto” for dinner, sans mushrooms (of course). I traded the thighs for chicken breasts, added some chiffonaded basil and served with store bought gnocchi. For some reason the CL picture is much “browner” than mine, probably because of the mushrooms.

High marks all the way around!

  2. How funny, I too just checked this book out from the library last week. There are some really good looking recipes in it!!

  3. I love getting cookbooks from the library! It gives me a chance to look them over to figure out if they are worth buying in the future. This chicken looks deliciously comforting!

  4. I had not thought of looking for cookbooks at the library either! The chicken looks good.
