Chicken Cacciatori is a classic Italian dish of braised chicken with tomato and mushrooms.  I made a quick version with roasted mushrooms, shallots, garlic, white wine, sherry and tomatoes — yum!!! Then I added a roasted chicken breast that I removed from the bones (saved the bones to make Classic Bone Broth).  It was very easy, quick and oh so delicious. We served the sauce over roasted cauliflower instead of rice or pasta, but either would work depending on your dietary focus and preferences.
