A note about serious food allergies

In this typically rustic preparation of an Italian classic, we coat our chicken thighs with Italian spices and sear them before finishing them off in a simmering, garlicky, red wine-reduced stew of crushed tomatoes, olives, basil, and mushrooms. The hearty sauce and tender chicken are spooned over angel hair pasta for a filling meal you’ll crave again and again.
