Chicken Cacciatora (Hunter Style-Chicken)

One of Italians' appetizing treats! I tried for the first time and I like the taste! Well, maybe because of the red wine I added, and the smell of cinnamon. It's really a hunter way of cooking, all I have to do is to add everything! I adapted the recipe from the cookbook - Your Favorite International Cuisine.

2 chicken breast fillet, cubed
salt and pepper to taste
2 tablespoon butter (I used olive oil)
1 medium onion, finely chopped
1 stalk celery, finely chopped
3 cloves garlic, chopped
pinch of sugar
pinch of cinnamon
1/4 cup red wine
1 large tomato, chopped
chicken stock (I used water)

Sprinkle the chicken pieces with salt, pepper, and flour. Heat oil in a pan and saute the chicken until slightly brown. Set aside. Using the same pan, add the onion, celery, and garlic. Saute until the cook. Add the chicken, sugar, cinnamon, and red wine. Cook for 5 minutes, stirring occasionally. Add the tomato and water. Season with salt and pepper. Cover and cook until chicken becomes tender.

My chicken is good, but my neighbor’s looks better.
