Pearl's Chicken Cacciatore

“Truthfully, I love this dish for the sauce it produces. The chicken is good too, but the sauce...sooo flavorful! I have made this several times just so I can have this sauce over my pinwheel pasta with some red pepper flakes and freshly grated parmesan cheese! This recipe came from one of my favorite cookbook, "New York Cookbook."”
