giusi’s faraone alla cacciatora

guinea hen hunter style

1 whole guinea hen (or chicken), cut into pieces
1/4 cup olive oil
salt and pepper, to taste
odori
1 cup white wine
2 cups tomato sauce, preferably homemade

Prepare the odori and set aside. In a large skillet, saute the chicken in the oil for ten minutes. Add salt and pepper and lower the flame. Add the odori and saute until golden. Add the while wine and simmer until all the liquid has evaporated. Add the tomato sauce and cook over a low flame for 15 minutes. As with many tomato recipes, this is best the next day. Serves 4.
