Chicken Cacciatore

Plenty of fresh tomatoes from the garden? Made my own sauce, a bit of work but the taste is worth it.

I like to add cut up potatoes with my cacciatore, I fry them slightly with the chicken pieces.

How to Make Chicken Cacciatore

Step-by-Step

  1. Blanch tomatoes in hot water, peel,core and remove seeds. Run through blender add some spices and olive oil to it. I also add a large can of tomatoes and 1 can of tomato paste and garlic .
  2. Pour into large pot, set on simmer ~ add a little sugar and let simmer while you brown your chicken.
  3. Cut chicken into serving size pieces, wash, dry and pour your oil in fry pan medium heat ~ cut up your onions, peppers. Place your chicken pieces in hot fry pan and brown on all sides. You may need to add more olive oil as the browning goes on, now throw in you peppers and onions and sliced potatoes, brown all.
  4. Add to simmering pot of sauce, check your sauce for acidity, you may need to add more sugar, I sprinkle a good amount of Parmesan cheese in the sauce and a chunck of butter.
    Let simmer for at least an hour, check with thermometer for doneness.
    Serve over your choice of pasta, mashed potato, noodles, raviolis etc. Don't forget the salad and Italian bread ~ *_*
