Chicken Cacciatorre (Simplified)

This was the first "fancy" recipe I ever learned how to make. However, there really isn't much to it! It's so incredibly simple to make, a quick throw-it-all-in recipe which tastes absolutely delicious.

Chicken Cacciatore goes very well with any bread. I would suggest corn bread or simple garlic bread.

Ingredients -

  • 500g Chicken
  • 3 Onions, chopped
  • 5 cloves Garlic, finely chopped
  • 2 boxes Tomato Puree
  • 2 tbsp Tomato Ketchup
  • 2 Bay Leaves
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Oil to shallow fry
  • Splash of White Wine (optional)

Brown the chicken in a shallow pan with salt and pepper and set aside.

In a larger pan heat oil add garlic and onions and fry till onions are pink, nearing translucent. Pour in the tomato puree and ketchup and cook for 5-6 minutes.

Toss in the bay leaves and the chicken. Sprinkle seasoning as per your taste, cover and let it simmer for 10 minutes.

Add a splash of wine just before serving and enjoy!
