Chicken Cacciatore

This rustic, homely, spicy chicken dish has been passed down to me from an Italian family. It is absolutely delicious and very easy to make!



  • 1.

    Fry garlic, onion, bacon in the olive oil on high heat mixing frequently until garlic and onion is soft and clear.

  • 2.

    Add celery and carrots, mixing frequently.

  • 3.

    Add chicken pieces and brown on both sides.

  • 4.

    Add white wine and mix well (allow alcohol to burn off)

  • 5.

    Then add all remaining ingredients except capsicum and potatoes.

  • 6.

    TURN HEAT DOWN to simmer in covered saucepan for 45 to 55 minutes.

  • 7.

    25 minutes before it is cooked add potatoes and garlic.


NB. This dish goes well with polenta or rice or egg noodle pasta and a mixed salad.
