Alix's Chicken Cacciatore

Another favorite in our house is Chicken Cacciatore and man is that one fast and easy meal. Kids love it. Use either chicken breast or deboned thighs. Place in casserole dish, sprinkle brown sugar on each piece of meat. (about 1 tsp each) In a small bowl, mix together 1 can tomato soup, and fill can with salsa and add to soup, toss in some oregano and basil and stir til blended. Spoon over the meat, and be generous. Sprinkle lots of mozzarella over all, cover and bake for 40 minutes or so. When there is only 5-10 minutes left, uncover and sprinkle more cheese on. The original cheese will have melted into the sauce and this last bit is to just brown up a bit while you toss the salad and serve up. Serve with pasta, the sauce is excellent with it.

Copied, pasted and printed. Thanks, Alix. I'll bet the brown sugar really adds a unique flavor. Can't wait to try it.

I'll say that my kids gobble it up! Ken is no slouch with it either. If we haven't had this in a while he starts to get a bit cranky.

Or tomato sauce, tomato juice, or spaghetti sauce.

I'd say no to tomato juice. Tomato sauce might be thick enough. LT, if you make your own tomato soup ever why don't you make a bit extra and save some for this. You'd need to reduce it a bunch though. The condensed nature of the soup works well here because the chicken gives off a lot of liquid and makes the sauce the perfect consistency. If I were going to sub something, I'd do tomato sauce and up the brown sugar a bit.

I wouldn't call that Chicken Cacciatore, but it sure sounds quick and tasty. I'd use tomato sauce, too...

So what would you call it? Its got all the requirements of cacciatore (tomato, onion, peppers, and herbs) its just got a "quick prep" method. I'm good with another name, just need a suggestion.
