“Hunter's style. This comes from Eleanora Scarpetta who was seen on the Martha Stewart show many, many years ago. My husband absolutely loves it! The original recipe calls for white wine and a hot pepper, which I omitted, and gaeta olives, for which I substituted green olives due to my husbands tastes, as well as oyster mushrooms, for which I used regular white mushrooms due to convenience and expense. It also called for fresh basil which I did not have so I just used dried. I am sure the ingredients I omitted would make for a more authentic dish. Any combination of chicken may be used, I prefer boneless because I am spoiled. :) This could also be done in a crock pot after the browning steps.”
