My Chicken Cacciatore was a success. Besides being inspired from reading Julie and Julia by Julie Powell, Jake is an inspiration to cook as well. Jake can cook. He's one of the most creative people on this planet. Besides being able to write, draw, sculpt and play music... he can also create some amazing dishes. The key is using spices. (I discovered chinese 5 spice while making the pumkin/peanut sauce with shrimp and scallops.)
The key to my Chicken Cacciatore was marinating it in red wine. Trader Joes had chicken thighs that were deboned too. I love Traders. I also used a bit of balsamic glaze in the sauce. I let is sit overnight, letting all the flavors meld and it was perfect for Sundays dinner.
