Vintage Chicken Cacciatore is an easy, flavorful and tender chicken dish that tastes like it’s been slow-cooking all day. It’s also the first recipe I made this year.
I titled this dish Vintage Chicken Cacciatore because it’s similar to the recipe my mom used to make when I was growing up (if I’m honest here, that was a very long time ago). And, when my daughters were little, I started making my own version of this dish.
This recipe never disappoints. The luscious, herby fragrance that swirls around my house while this meal is cooking is pure comfort. It causes even my pickiest eaters to waltz through the kitchen and take a peek at what’s simmering stove top.
Smothered in a wine and tomato infused gravy, Vintage Chicken Cacciatore is filled fresh aromatics, herbs and olives. To finish the recipe I brown mushrooms, so they don’t get soggy, and then add them to the cooked chicken before I serve it.
Because it doesn’t cook long, I like to add a smidgen of balsamic vinegar to the finished dish, just to bring all those gorgeous flavors together.
Serving creamy parmesan polenta with this chicken recipe is a must. Polenta is sweet, creamy and perfect for soaking up the sauce.
I snapped this photo with my phone and posted it on my Instagram a week ago. I had every intention of posting the recipe there as well. But, the recipe was too long and it wouldn’t fit on Instagram. So I’m posting it here and I also posted the recipe on Facebook. So now, this recipe should be easily available for all to enjoy. Which makes me very happy.
The new year is off to a great start! Especially with a bowl of this gorgeous Vintage Chicken Cacciatore. If you make the recipe, I’d love to know what you think and how you made it your own.
Peace and Love, Karista
