Italy’s hunter-style chicken is made the nation over in nearly as many variations as there are cooks. It usually includes wine – often white, sometimes red – and sometimes tomatoes. If your chicken has a good amount of fat on it you won’t need to add any oil to the pan when you brown it before braising.




1.Heat a large non-stick frying pan over medium-high heat, add chicken pieces and fry, turning occasionally, until golden (6-9 minutes). Transfer to a plate and set aside.
2.Add onion to pan and sauté until tender (5-7 minutes), then add garlic and cook until just tender (1-2 minutes). Add wine, bring to the boil, then return chicken to pan with remaining ingredients and simmer over medium-low heat until chicken is cooked through (1 hour).
3.Serve cacciatore hot with crusty bread and a crisp green salad.

Drink Suggestion: Pale, dry rosato. Drink suggestion by Max Allen
