Chicken Cacciatore

3-4 pounds chicken parts
1/4 cup olive oil
2 small onions, sliced thin
2 cloves garlic, chopped fine
1/3 cup tomato paste
3/4 cup white wine
3/4 cup chicken broth
1 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
1/4 teaspoon thyme
1/4 teaspoon marjoram
1/2 teaspoon basil
1 bay leaf
2 small tomatoes, seeded and chopped
1/4 pound fresh mushrooms, slice thin
1 large green pepper; seeded and cut into thin strips

In a large skillet, brown chicken in hot oil until golden brown. Add onions and garlic. Combine next nine ingredients. Pour over chicken. Cover and simmer thirty-five minutes, stirring occasionally. Add tomatoes, mushrooms, green pepper. Cover and continued to cook twenty minutes. Serve over pasta or polenta.

If you don't have all the individual seasonings just substitue two teaspoons italian seasonings.
