Yield:
4 to 6 servings
Level:
Easy
Ingredients
  • 1 whole chicken, cut into 1/8's
  • Salt and pepper
  • 2 tablespoons dry oregano
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 onion, chopped, 1 cup
  • 6 to 8 pickled hot red and green cherry peppers
  • 1/2 cup dry white wine
  • 1 cup hot beef broth, chicken broth or water
  • 1/2 cup fresh plum tomatoes, seeded and diced
  • 2 cups egg noodles
  • 4 tablespoons melted butter
  • Chopped Italian parsley
Directions
  • Season the chicken pieces with salt, pepper and the dry oregano. In a large straight-sided saute pan or chicken fryer heat the olive oil over medium heat. Add the chicken to the hot oil and brown all sides well. While the chicken is cooking drain the peppers, cut them into quarters, and discard the stem and seeds. In a separate saucepan heat the broth and keep warm. Drain, carefully, all but 2 tablespoons of fat from the chicken and add the onions. Cook the onions to golden brown. Add the peppers to the onions and cook for 2 to 3 minutes. Add the wine and cook for 2 minutes over medium heat. Add the broth and tomato and bring to a boil. Lower the heat to a simmer and cover the pan. Braise the chicken, onions and peppers for 25 to 30 minutes or until the chicken is fully cooked. Just before serving, bring 4 quarts of water to a boil, add 1 tablespoon of salt, and cook the noodles until tender. Drain the noodles, toss with butter and place on a large platter. Serve the chicken over the noodles and sprinkle freshly chopped parsley over the top.
