  • How long will this keep in the frig?

    Here's the recipe I use for Chicken Cacciatore:

    Chicken Cacciatore by Shopper (Christiane )

    I use 5 or 6 chicken breasts ( Half a breast each )
    3 tablespoons shortening ( I use light olive oil )
    2 medium onions, thinly sliced
    2 cloves garlic minced
    3 stalks celery chopped
    1 can ( 1 pound or 16 oz ) tomatoes - i use the diced ones
    1 can ( 8 ounce ) tomato sauce
    1/3 minced green pepper
    1 teaspoon salt
    1/4 black pepper
    1/2 teaspoon crushed basil
    1 bay leaf
    1/4 cup Chianti wine ( if desired )

    Brown chicken breasts in hot oil in skillet
    Layer onion slices in slow cooker
    Put browned ckicken pieces on top of onion slices
    Then add remaining ingredients (i put them all in a bowl first and mix them together and then pour over the chicken breasts)
    Cover and cook on Low 6 to 8 hrs ( or High 3- 4 hrs )
    Discard bay leaf.
    Serve chicken pieces with sauce over buttered noodles or rice


    I want to double the sauce and use it for Swiss Steak later. Do you think it would keep for a week or so in the frig? I don't like freezing sauces because they always seem "watery" to me when I thaw them out.

    I Don't Know That I Would Keep It Anymore Than A Week.

      My kids used to make fun of my "three day rule". All leftovers get tossed after 3 days.

        I am with Debster and her 3 day rule. That's what I do for most stuff.

          I MADE SOMETHING LIKE that on sunday. i asked everyone to finish it last night ! you can't be too careful ! freeze after a day or so if you're not sure you'll use it all. no sense wasting or gettng sick.
          I don't want buns of steel. I want buns of cinnamon !!!

            I can't see anything in the ingredients that wouldn't hold up frozen.. It's going to be somewhat watery either way.

              I Would Freeze What You Want To Use Later.

                being a freezer queen that i am.
                i agree freeze it and then defrost it, no big deal....
                I just hold on tighter, to a hand that's stronger...he knows my every thought, he clears my weary heart, and hold's on tighter...
