Chicken Cacciatora – An Italian favorite

Published on March 10, 2011 | Main Course

Chicken cacciatora is an all time favorite of my mom and she shared her recipe with me.  The sweetness of the carrots blended with the tomatoes and bell peppers,   as a result you have a sauce with wonderful aroma and taste.

Another way to  prepare this wonderful dish is on your pressure cooker. In less than 20 minutes. Add all the ingredients together, seal and cook according to manufacturing direction.

The chicken can be paired with mashed potatoes, pasta or rice. Spaghetti rigati will absorb the sauce best.

Our choice tonight was “Spaghetti Rigati”. Great left over dish…if there are any left.




1 whole chicken cut in 8 pieces

Olive oil

2 celery ribs, chopped

1 carrot, chopped

1 garlic cloves

5 or 6 tomatoes, seeds removed and chopped, or a 28oz can chopped tomatoes in juice

2 mediums red or orange bell pepper cut in small pieces

½ to ¾ cup white or red wine

Add the olive oil in a medium pan over medium heat. Add the chicken skin down and brown, 2 minutes and turn. Add the celery, carrots, garlic, the tomatoes and the wine. When starting to boil add the bell peppers. Lower the heat to low, slightly cover the pan and cook for 40 minutes.
