What is Chicken Cacciatore?

Cacciatore means “hunter” in Italian. In cuisine, Cacciatore is prepped in “hunter-style” with herbs, onions, often bell peppers, usually tomatoes, and sometimes wine. Cacciatore is popularly made with braised chicken. The small salami cacciatore is seasoned only with pepper & garlic.

A classic Chicken Cacciatore recipe usually consists of onions, tomatoes, garlic, and peppers and wine. Personally, I like to use mushrooms because mushrooms give me that deliciously meaty flavor.
