Chicken Cacciatore might strike some as a difficult dish that must be authentic to enjoy. Quite the contrary!
Each cook seems to add or subtract to the basic recipe, which typically calls for chicken, tomatoes, onion, bell pepper, and a few other ingredients. It is very easy to make, and excellent leftovers for the following day.
Cacciatore ( kÄch ' É-tôr ' Ä, -tÅr ' Ä )
This recipe was found in a 2001 Sonoma-Williams chicken cookbook, and although I found it to be a good one, I did make alterations, and even wondered if there was a typo with regard to a call for drained tomatoes. Nowhere in the recipe was the juice called back into action, but should have been. The following includes my amendments, including
grilled chicken instead of fried, diced instead of parts on the bone. I don't like bones in my food.
That's just the way it is.
