1 (6.5 ounce) can mushroom stems & pieces
1 cup white cooking wine

1. Cut the chicken into bite-sized pieces. Combine the flour, salt and pepper in a large resealable plastic bag; add the chicken a few pieces at a time and shake to coat.

2. In a large skillet over medium heat, brown the chicken in the oil in small batches; transfer to a Dutch oven.

3. In a small skillet, cook the onion, garlic and green bell pepper in the butter until vegetables are tender; add to the meat in Dutch oven. Stir in the diced tomatoes, mushrooms, white cooking wine and oregano; cover and simmer over medium-low heat for 30 to 40 minutes. Serve over hot cooked noodles or white rice; sprinkle with Parmesan cheese, if desired. Makes 6 to 8 servings.
