I'll be honest, I wasn't expecting to love this recipe only because I've been disappointed lately by some "diet" recipes. This was a unique twist on chicken cacciatore. I loved - and I mean LOVED - the shiitake mushrooms in it. If you want to cut down the carbs more, use chicken broth instead of the wine.
