Auntie Lisa's Smothered Chicken
4 lb Chicken
2 lb potatoes, cubed (I like to use 1 lb russet, 1 lb new potato*)
1 onion, sliced in slivers
1 can tomato sauce (16 oz)
5 tsp salt (less salt if using cooking wine)
½ C olive oil
½ C water
¼ C vinegar, white
12 green olives (add more if desired)
1 tsp capers
12 cloves garlic, minced
1 C white wine** (optional)
- Place chicken, onion and potatoes in large Dutch oven pot. In medium bowl, combine all other ingredients. Pour over chicken, onion, and potatoes in pot. Bring to a boil, and then reduce heat to medium.
- Cover and let boil one hour.
For crock-pot: Place chicken, onion and potatoes in large crock pot. In medium bowl, combine all other ingredients. Pour over chicken, onion, and potatoes in crock-pot. Cook on high for 5 hours.
or Cook on medium for 8 to 10 hours.
*The russet potato usually falls apart, thickening the sauce. By adding a new potato, you get some potatoes that maintain their shape.
** I don’t cook with alcohol, but I’m keeping the recipe “as is” for those who do.
