Mangini Maniacs Chicken Cacciatore Chili
This chicken chili is loaded with peppers, onions and mushrooms. Cacciatore in Italian means “hunter”,
and we are definitely on the hunt for a win this week. The traditional peppers in this dish have been
kicked up with hot chilies, so if you’re a milder chili lover, omit the jalapenos and red pepper flakes.

Level of Difficulty: Medium

Serves 8.

3 tablespoons olive oil
1 (2 lb.) package boneless, skinless chicken thighs, cut into small pieces
1 (1.5 lb.) package boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cut into small pieces
1 large onion, diced
2 large green peppers, diced
2 jalapenos, minced
1 lb. sliced mushrooms
6 cloves garlic, minced
1 (28 oz.) can crushed tomatoes
1 cup dry white wine
1 tablespoon dried oregano
1 teaspoon red pepper flakes
2 teaspoons coarse salt
1 teaspoon black pepper
¼ cup fresh basil, shredded

In a large stockpot, heat the olive oil. Brown chicken in oil. Add onion, green peppers, jalapenos,
mushrooms and garlic. Cook for 8-10 minutes or until vegetables have softened. Add crushed
tomatoes, white wine, oregano, red pepper flakes, salt and pepper and stir well. Bring mixture to a boil,
then reduce heat and simmer, stirring occasionally for 30-40 minutes. Stir in basil and serve.
