Chicken Cacciatori

Came home from a day of Christmas and Baby Shower shopping to find little in the fridge (still). Carol was coming over for a night of DVDs and wine, so I had to throw something together.

Found some unused cherry tomatoes, leftover chopped tarragon, some dubious mushrooms, and some chicken thighs in the freezer. Hmmm. Did a long simmered tomato sauce, added some frozen homemade chicken stock, more herbs, some white wine and let it all cook down for three hours.

Super-hot sautee of the chicken, then spooned the sauce around, into the oven for ten minutes. Hey! What's this! A bunch of real Parmigiano Reggiano! Onto the top, ten more minutes. Boil some rigatoni. Plate. Eat. Not too shabby.
