Chicken Cacciatore

Chicken Cacciatore
contributed by Christina Nielsen, originally from Our Best Bites

1 lb chicken breasts, or chicken breasts and thighs, trimmed of fat and cut into bite-sized pieces
1/4 cup white flour
1 tsp Kosher salt
1 tsp freshly ground black pepper
1/2 cup olive oil
1 onion, roughly chopped
5-6 cloves garlic, peeled and either crushed or halved
1 (6-oz) can tomato paste
1 cup white wine (you can also use apple or white grape juice mixed with 1 tablespoon white wine vinegar)
1 1/2 cups chicken broth
1/4 tsp thyme
1/4 tsp marjoram
1/2 tsp salt (omit if using cooking wine; you may shrivel up and die if you add the salt in addition to cooking wine because cooking wine is treated with salt to make it undrinkable)
1 bay leaf
1 cup sliced mushrooms (or more if you love them. Mushrooms are divine in this dish!)
1 green bell pepper, chopped
