This classic “Hunter’s Chicken” is a year-round favorite in our home. Browned chicken breasts and thighs (we usually just do all thighs in our home) are bathed in a luscious sauce of onion, red bell pepper, garlic, mushrooms, tomatoes, oregano, and white wine, then garnished with a good Parmesan cheese and fresh basil.
