Simple Chicken Cacciatore Recipe

  • 1 whole chicken, cut into 8 pieces
  • 2 cups ketchup
  • 1 green bell pepper, diced
  • 1 onion, diced
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1/4 cup oil
  • 2 tablespoons white vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  2. Arrange chicken pieces in a baking dish in a flat layer.
  3. Stir ketchup, bell pepper, onion, water, oil, vinegar, salt, garlic powder, and black pepper together in a bowl; pour evenly over chicken pieces to coat.
  4. Bake the chicken, basting occasionally, in the preheated oven until no longer pink at the bone and the juices run clear, about 2 hours. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the thickest part of the thigh, near the bone should read 165 degrees F (74 degrees C).
