Anyway, he has already tried Pollo alla cacciatora since getting home, and said it was really delicious and easy to make. So, here it is:
Pollo alla cacciatora - Chicken cacciatora.
4 or 5 chicken thighs, skin removed and excess fat trimmed
1 medium onion, diced
1 stalk of celery thinly sliced
1 carrot diced
4 or 5 very ripe tomatoes or 7 or 8 Roma tomatoes chopped into medium dice
Handful of pitted black olives, sliced.
2 or 3 cloves of garlic finely diced
Salt and Pepper to taste
the vegetables all together in a medium skillet (except tomatoes.) When the vegetables begin to soften, add tomatoes and simmer gently until a little thickened. (20 to 30 minutes)until a sauce has been made. Salt and pepper the chicken pieces and arrange in a baking dish oiled with more olive oil. Pour the sauce over the chicken to coat it. Cover with foil and bake in a 350 degree oven for about one hour. Makes very tender fall of the bones chicken with a nice sauce for pasta, if you are eating any pasta. You can shave some parmesan over the top at the last if you wish.
