Directions:
Cook onion in olive oil at medium heat in a skillet until translucent.
Add sliced garlic and the chicken breasts, skin side down. Cook until the skin forms a golden crust, then turn the pieces over and brown the other side.
Add salt and pepper, turn chicken 2 or 3 times to cook evenly. Add the wine, and let it simmer away until about half of it has evaporated.
Add the cut-up tomatoes, turn down the heat and simmer. Cover the pan, putting the lid on slightly askew.
Turn and baste the chicken pieces while they are cooking. If the liquid evaporates, add 2 T water.
Cook until the meat is tender and comes easily off the bone (or use a meat thermometer).

Personal Notes:
My dear friend and neighbor Pam brought me chicken cacciatore when I arrived home from the hospital with both of my babies. This dish has great sentimental value to me now and I made it for all of my friends when they brought their babies home from the hospital. Now that we are all a little older, the dish gets made when a family is going through one of life's more difficult times. When you are not sure what else to do, leave a casserole on their doorstep, I always learned. It seems as if food cooked with love can always take the edge off any sticky situation. The Hommels always say that a couple of glasses of wine and a few pieces of chocolate can't hurt either. :)
