Chicken Cacciatore
2 tbsp. olive oil
2 tbsp. butter
3 lbs. chicken pieces (with bones)
1/2 lb. mushrooms
1 medium onion, chopped
2 green peppers, chopped
2 cloves garlic, minced
1/2 cup water
1/2 cup dry white wine (or chicken broth)
6 oz. can tomato paste
1 1/2 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. each: marjoram, oregano, thyme

Brown chicken in oil and butter over medium high. Discard all but 3 Tbsp. of the drippings. Add mushrooms, onion and garlic to pan. Reduce heat to medium and cook, stirring occasionally, until onion is soft. Stir in remaining ingredients and return chicken to pan. Bring to a boil. Cover, reduce heat & simmer 40-45 minutes until sauce thickens, and chicken is cooked through.
