Want to head to an Italian restaurant (or better yet, an Italian grandmother’s kitchen) for dinner tonight? Try this Chicken Cacciatore!
This easy recipe has the hearty robustness and juicy tenderness of traditional chicken cacciatore, but is far faster to make.
It uses simple, healthy swaps too.
Cacciatore (pronounced Kah-Chuh-Taw-Ree) means “hunter” in Italian.
- Thus, chicken cacciatore means chicken that is prepared alla cacciatore or “hunter-style.”
- It’s a rustic stew-like dish (like France’s Beef Bourguignon) made with slow-simmered chicken (or rabbit), tomatoes, seasonal vegetables, and a splash of wine or vinegar.
You’ll find as many recipes for chicken cacciatore on the internet these days as there are Italian grandmothers who make them.
What they all share in common, however, is a richly flavored sauce, tender chicken, and copious amounts of love and care cooked into every recipe.
5 Star Review
“This recipe has become one of my family’s most favorite. It is easy to prepare, serves well, freezes easily and is great over rice, roasted, or mashed potatoes. And of course pasta.”— Peter —
How to Make Chicken Cacciatore
You don’t need to be an experienced chef to make this simple chicken cacciatore recipe.
Even if you’ve never made a single chicken recipe before, you can cook this easy recipe with success and transport yourself to Italy!
To make this recipe as streamlined as possible, I skip dredging in flour—it’s really not needed.
Baked Chicken Parmesan and Crock Pot Chicken Marsala are two more excellent easy recipes that offer restaurant-worthy flavor.
- Chicken Thighs. Chicken thighs are a wonderful choice for chicken stews like this (see also Spanish Chicken Stew). Dark meat is especially tender, juicy, and flavorful, and I promise you won’t regret giving it a try. Plus, chicken thighs are lean, and they contain oodles of beneficial protein, vitamins, and nutrients.
- Onion + Green Bell Pepper + Garlic. A flavorful trio to kick off our cacciatore sauce.
- Dry White Wine. The addition of wine enhances the other flavors in this recipe (as it does in my Chicken Piccata and these Braised Short Ribs). You’ll want to use a dry white wine so that it doesn’t add any unnecessary sweetness. In the “Wine Pairing” section below, you can find some suggested varieties.
- Crushed Tomatoes. I used the crushed tomatoes and their juices to build a rich tomato flavor for the sauce.
- Mushrooms. As the mushrooms cook, they add a scrumptious, earthy flavor to the sauce.
- Italian Seasoning. Ties everything together with a tasty Italian-inspired bouquet of flavors. Typically consist of a combination of basil, oregano, rosemary, thyme, garlic powder, sage, or coriander.
Want to add a little kick to your dish? Add 1 tsp or more of red pepper flakes.
- Balsamic Vinegar. For deep flavor that makes the sauce taste like it’s been simmering all day.
- Season the chicken with salt and pepper in pan.
- Brown the chicken on both sides, then remove it to a plate.
- Sauté the onion and pepper. Add the garlic. Pour in the wine, scraping any browned bits off the bottom of the pan, and let it simmer over medium heat.
- Stir in the tomatoes, mushrooms, Italian seasoning, and vinegar. Simmer uncovered for 10 minutes.
- Lay the chicken thighs in the sauce. Simmer partially covered until the chicken is cooked through. Dice or shred the chicken (if desired), or keep the thighs whole. Serve with herbs like parsley or fresh basil leaves, Parmesan, and any desired sides. DIG IN!
How to Serve Chicken Cacciatore
Chicken cacciatore is traditionally served with some kind of starch such as pasta. There’s really no wrong way to do it, but here are a few of my favorite options.
- Whole Wheat Pasta. You could opt for long tendrils of spaghetti or a short-cut pasta, like rigatoni or penne. I like whole wheat for its higher fiber content.
- Cooked Orzo. Fora rice-pasta hybrid in terms of taste, texture, and consistency.
- Mashed Potatoes. Try serving with either my Crockpot Mashed Potatoes, Garlic Mashed Potatoes, or Instant Pot Mashed Potatoes.
- Brown Rice. Not as traditional, but nonetheless delicious. See Instant Pot Brown Rice for a recipe.
- Creamy Polenta. A classic Italian pairing for cacciatore (see this Creamy Polenta for a recipe).
- Risotto. A simple parmesan risotto would be lovely with cacciatore. You could also try it with my Farro Risotto or Barley Risotto.
- Bread. Soak up the yummy sauce with slices of No Knead Focaccia or Rosemary Olive Oil Bread.
- For white wine, a dry Riesling, Pinot Grigio, Sauvignon Blanc, or Chardonnay would pair nicely with this dish.
- If you prefer red wine, try a Chianti or Sangiovese. Since this recipe calls for 3/4 cup of wine, I like to cook with a white wine that’s good enough to drink. Add a little to the dish, and drink the rest of the bottle with dinner.
- Not a wine person? Pair an Italian Margarita with your chicken cacciatore instead.
- To Store. Place leftovers in fridge in an airtight container for up to 4 days.
- To Reheat. Gently rewarm this dish in a Dutch oven on the stovetop over medium-low heat. You can also microwave, until steaming, if desired.
- To Freeze. Freeze leftovers in an airtight, freezer-safe storage container for up to 3 months. Let thaw overnight in the refrigerator before reheating.
What to Serve with Chicken Cacciatore
Recommended Tools to Make Chicken Cacciatore
- Skillet. An essential tool in my kitchen for making delicious recipes like this chicken cacciatore.
- Sharp Chef’s Knife. Easily chop vegetables, meat, fruit, and more with a high-quality knife like this one.

Frequently Asked Questions
Sure! Note that the chicken will take longer to cook, however. Use an instant-read thermometer to check the temperature of the chicken as it cooks. When it hits 165 degrees F it is fully cooked. For bone-in thighs, estimate about 45 minutes.
Certainly. Sear the chicken on both sides in batches. Remove the skin (it will get soggy anyway), then simmer the thighs in the sauce, until cooked through, about 40 to 45 minutes for bone-in.
Readers have reported success swapping the canned tomatoes for fresh tomatoes. If you do this swap, I would suggest tasting the sauce and seasoning with additional salt, to taste, since fresh tomatoes do contain less sodium than canned.
For the crock pot yes! See this Slow Cooker Chicken Cacciatore. I have not tested this stovetop chicken cacciatore recipe in a pressure cooker so the Instant Pot would be an experiment.
FOR THE CHICKEN CACCIATORE:
- 3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil divided
- 2 pounds boneless skinless chicken thighs
- 1 teaspoon kosher salt
- 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
- 1 medium yellow onion chopped
- 1 medium green bell pepper chopped
- 3 cloves garlic minced
- 3/4 cup dry white wine or low sodium chicken broth
- 1 28 ounce can crushed tomatoes
- 8 ounces sliced baby bella (cremini) mushrooms
- 2 teaspoons Italian seasoning
- 1/2 tablespoon balsamic vinegar
- Whole wheat pasta or brown rice, polenta, rice, zucchini noodles, or baked and shredded spaghetti squash
- Chopped fresh parsley or basil
- Freshly grated Parmesan cheese
- Heat 2 tablespoons olive oil in a Dutch oven or similar deep, sturdy pot over medium-high. Season both sides of the chicken with salt and pepper.
- Once the oil is hot and shimmering (but not so hot it starts smoking), add the chicken in a single layer. Cook on the first side for 3 to 4 minutes, until browned, moving the chicken as little as possible so that it gets a nice sear. Flip and brown on the other side, about 2 additional minutes. Transfer the chicken to a large, clean plate. The chicken does not need to be cooked through.
- Reduce the heat to medium. Add the remaining 1 tablespoon oil, onion, and bell pepper. Cook until the vegetables begin to soften, about 4 minutes.
- Add the garlic and cook for 1 minute, or until the garlic is fragrant.
- Add the white wine. Stir and let simmer until the wine is reduced by approximately half, about 3 minutes.
- Add the tomatoes with their juices, mushrooms, Italian seasoning, and balsamic vinegar, stirring to combine. Bring to a simmer. Let the sauce simmer, uncovered, for 10 minutes.
- Nestle the chicken thighs into the tomato sauce, along with any drippings that have collected on the plate. The chicken should be mostly submerged, though some may peek through.
- Partially cover the pot and let simmer 15 to 20 additional minutes, or until the chicken is cooked through, the sauce is thickened, and the mushrooms are tender.
- If you’d like to dice or shred the chicken, remove it to a cutting board. When cool enough to handle, dice or shred it, then return it to the pot. You also can serve the chicken thighs whole.
- Taste and season the sauce with additional salt and pepper as desired. If you've chopped or shredded the chicken, return it to the sauce and toss to combine and warm through. Otherwise, serve the chicken pieces whole with a generous amount of sauce on top.
- Serve hot over pasta, rice, polenta, or veggie noodles, with a big extra spoonful of sauce and a sprinkle of parsley and Parmesan.
- TO STORE: Refrigerator leftovers in an airtight storage container for up to 4 days.
- TO REHEAT: Gently rewarm chicken cacciatore in a Dutch oven on the stovetop over medium-low heat.
- TO FREEZE: Freeze leftovers in an airtight, freezer-safe storage container for up to 3 months. Let thaw overnight in the refrigerator before reheating.

Made this for dinner yesterday. Huge hit!!!! Keep these fantastic recipes coming… can’t wait for your cookbook! You’re amazing~~
I’m so happy that you enjoyed the recipe, Debbie! Thank you for sharing this lovely review!
This was delicious! I did tweak it based on what I ended up with in the pantry. For crushed tomatoes I subbed 1 can diced and some leftover marinara I had in the fridge. Used a red onion and red bell pepper because that’s all I had. Added olives because my grandmother used to throw them in and omitted the mushrooms. But this was still great! I just ate and I’m ready for seconds. Thank you!
I’m so happy that you enjoyed the recipe, Jenn! Thank you for sharing this kind review!
I received nothing but compliments from my Italian family. Just like my mom used to make. I used Torreseela Pinot Grigio Venezia. 2018 and I am telling you it was devine. Followed recipe exactly as you wrote it. It will be my specialty going forward. Especially since I cannot find my mom’s original recipe. When I read this one I knew this was the one to make. Thank you very very much. – 5 Starts for sure!!!!!
This MAKES my day, Christine! Thank you for sharing this wonderful review!
This looks DELICIOUS! You think there’s anyway this could be done in a slow cooker/crock pot? If so, for how long on low/medium or high? Thanks!
Hi Ashlyn! I suggest checking out my Slow Cooker Chicken Cacciatore recipe, which was developed for the crockpot. I hope you enjoy it if you try it!
Made this last evening, it was amazing! Plus, it was fun filling the home with the homey aromas!!! A keeper, go to!!
I’m so happy that you enjoyed it, Susie! Thank you for sharing this kind review!
This was sooo good! I used boneless chicken breasts and shredded to add back into the sauce. They were tender and delicious. I used a Chardonnay instead of chicken broth. Excellent recipe!
I’m so happy that you enjoyed it, Teresa! Thank you for sharing this kind review!
Every single picky eater ate this dish. Omitted the mushrooms as only I like them and used chicken cutlets. Kids had seconds and thirds.
I’m so happy that you enjoyed it, Jen! Thank you for sharing this kind review!
Could this be modified for the instant pot? Thank you!
Hi Crystal! I’ve only tested the recipe as written, so it would be a complete experiment. However, another reader has reported success with adapting my Slow Cooker Chicken Cacciatore for the Instant Pot. If you decide to play around with it, I’d love to hear how it goes!
Love this recipe! I used my home canned tomatoes & Chardonnay also I added black olives & julienned carrots. The sauce is delicious! This is one recipe I will make again and again!

I’m so happy that you enjoyed it, Julia! Thank you for sharing this kind review!
Hi Erin! I’m planning to make this tomorrow, however, I just realized I bought chicken thighs with bones. Will it be good by using that as well?
Hi Dorothy! That should work fine, but the chicken may take a little longer to cook through. I’d recommend checking it with an instant read thermometer to see when it’s done. I hope you enjoy the recipe!
Made this last night and the whole family loved it, even the picky eater. ;-) The only thing I did extra for him was smooth out the sauce with my immersion blender before adding the chicken back in. Thanks for the easy, delicious and healthy recipe!
I’m so happy that you enjoyed it, Corrie! Thank you for sharing this kind review!
Delicious and so easy to make! What is the herb shown in the photo though- it doesn’t look like parsley.
I am so happy you enjoyed it Emily! That’s thyme :)
Delicious and simple to make!
I’m so happy that you enjoyed it, Julia! Thank you for sharing this kind review!
WOW!! What an awesome recipe! I haven’t had cacciatore since I was a kid and I’m really not sure why. Even as a picky eating kid, it was one of my favorites! When I saw this recipe I knew that I had to make it! Between the use of boneless chicken and the simplification from some of the other recipes I’ve seen, I knew that it was time! I certainly wasn’t disappointed!! Who would have thought they your recipe could guide me to making restaurant quality food…… and ring back a great childhood memory. Thank you so much!!
I’m so happy that you enjoyed it, Mike! Thank you for sharing this kind review!
Fantastic dish! Made it as directed except subbed red wine for the white as that is what I had on hand, but my GOODness!!! This is soooo delicious and very easy to prepare. My husband loved it and though he never complains about anything I make, he told me to definitely make this dish again! Thank you for sharing!
I’m so happy that you enjoyed it, Alicia! Thank you for sharing this kind review!
I can’t even tell you how amazing this recipe is. My husband and I couldn’t get enough!
I’m so happy that you enjoyed it, Carly! Thank you for sharing this kind review!
I’ve tried many Chicken Cacciatore recipes over the years. This was, by far, the easiest and most flavorful of them all! My husband mentioned how great it smelled, when he came home from work and found it delicious, as well. I use red bell pepper additionally and served it over linguini with a salad and garlic rolls. My leftovers today for lunch were so yummy! Thanks for this keeper!
I’m so happy that you enjoyed it, Chris! Thank you for sharing this kind review!
Oh my goodness!!! This sauce is to die for and SO easy. Chicken is amazingly tender. I served it over gluten free penne. The sauce was hearty enough that it clung to the noodles and tasted amazing! Served sprinkled with grated Parmesan and a side salad!!! A perfect meal in about an hour!
I’m so happy that you enjoyed it, Susan! Thank you for sharing this kind review!
Outstanding… full flavored, easy w/ minimal prep work and meal complete in an hr 10 mins. Served it over angel hair pasta, freshly shaved Parmesan and Buffalo mozzarella pearls with a side salad and garlic bread.
So glad it turned out for you! Thank you for kind review Lisa!
This recipe looks delicious! Could I use chicken breast instead of children Thighs?
Hi! While I haven’t tested this recipe with chicken breast, I have had other readers say they’ve used boneless chicken breast and it worked great for them! Let me know how it turns out! Thank you!
You sure can. I love thighs but my family likes breast so I did it with the breast. Came out great.
The sauce is amazing..chicken is tender..served over spaghetti squash.
Hi Christine! So glad you enjoyed the chicken! Thank you for this kind review!
It turned out perfect. So easy to make. Delicious 😋
Hi Chi Chi! So glad you enjoyed the recipe! Thank you for this kind review!
I prefer recipes with exact amounts/weights of ingredients, but it worked out. Great warm tastes!
Hi Jaap Meijer, thank you for this kind review.
Turned out amazing! I served it over pasta. The only thing I did different was cook it in my Ninja Pressure cooker. When I added the chicken back to the pot, I pressure cooked it on high for 8 minutes. In all, took less than 45 minutes to make.
Hi Mel! So glad you enjoyed the recipe! Thank you for this kind review!
I added some shredded kale to get some green veggies in my son and it was super yummy!
Hi Amanda! So glad you enjoyed the chicken! Thank you for this kind review and your feedback!
Could you use fresh tomatoes instead of canned, during this great tomato season? If so, how many/how much? Thank you!
Hi Judy! I’ve only tested the recipe as written, so it would be an experiment if you use fresh tomatoes. If you decide to try it, I’d love to hear how it goes!
Thank you so much for that prompt answer! I did use heirloom purple Cherokee tomatoes (just guessing at the amount), and it was a success! I recommend it!
Delicious and easy! ❤️ Going into our family’s rotation.
Hi Nicole! So glad you enjoyed the recipe! Thank you for this kind review!
This recipe is a good base. I added carrots,basil, oregano, paprika , bay leafs, a little chicken broth and a bit of Chili peppers. Roped with parm. Chez
Hi Rebecca! Thanks so much! We love it and hope other do too!
This recipe has become one of my families most favorite. It is easy to prepare, serves well, freezes easily and is great over rice, roasted or mashed potatoes. And of course pasta. The extra sauce, if there’s any left goes over pasta all by its self making this a multiple night enjoyment.
Hi Peter! So glad you enjoyed the recipe! Thank you for this kind review!
I just made this tonight!! Delicious!! I made it with both thighs and breast. The sauce was so good! I added a pinch of red pepper flakes to the sauce and celery! I can’t wait to eat my leftovers for lunch for the next 2 days!! Putting some in the freezer too!! I will definitely make this again!!
Hi Sue! So glad you enjoyed the recipe! Thank you for this kind review!
This sounds delicious but I’m not a big fan of mushrooms. Is there another veggie I could swap in? Or are the mushrooms essential to the flavor of the dish? Thanks!
Hi Jessica! I’ve not tested it out with anything else, but maybe you could use fresh spinach? Other readers have just left them out and still enjoyed the dish. Hope this helps!
Can you tell me the name of you pan I love the style and color
Hi Susan! It’s the Le Creuset Enameled Cast Iron Signature Braiser, 3.5 qt., Caribbean Link: https://amzn.to/34JZ4uD
This recipe takes to much work before you even start. The ingredients and the amounts aren’t listed.
I’m confused because I see it on my end. The full recipe with the measurements was right in the recipe card above the area where you commented. There is also a “jump to recipe” button at the top of the page as well to help get you to the recipe card faster. Can you please double check? Thanks!
Easy to make and delicious!
Hi! So glad you enjoyed the recipe! Thank you for this kind review!
This was my first time making this dish. I found it easy and turned out outstanding. My husband loved it , he is the cook in our home. So thank you I did look at other ones but I think I found the best.
Hi Tanya! So glad you enjoyed the chicken! Thank you for this kind review!
My dad requested chicken cacciatore for his birthday dinner and I was unsure of even what this meal was! After reviewing multiple recipes I chose well plated (as I’ve loved other recipes from her blog as well) and this recipe was not only easy to follow but absolutely delicious! My dad was a very happy birthday boy. I used chicken breast and broth instead of wine and it was perfect !
Hi Laura! That makes me so happy to hear! Thank you! Glad you enjoyed it!
Was wonderful, but I did thin the sauce a smidge by adding a little water. Was a little thick.
Hi Shannon! So glad you enjoyed the chicken! Thank you for this kind review!
I made this after a busy day today. I used jarred marinara instead of the tomatoes and Better Than Bullion garlic flavor. That eliminated me having to use fresh garlic. White wine instead of chicken broth and I added some chopped green olives. Oh. My. Word! This will be a staple at our house!! Served over rice. So good!
Hi Lana! So glad you enjoyed the recipe. Thank you for this kind review!
This was delicious 😋. I only used four thighs and that was perfect for me. My mistake was My crushed tomatoes had no little pieces of tomato so I added a small amount of diced tomatoes. It kinda watered the flavor down but it was still good. I will look for better quality crushed tomatoes.
Can I reheat it in the microwave and if not why? Thanks for a terrific recipe!!
Hi Kerry, so glad you enjoyed the recipe! Thank you for this kind review! My reheating instructions are for the stovetop because that is how I prefer to reheat my chicken.
Turned out really good .
Hi Laurel! So glad you enjoyed the recipe! Thank you for this kind review!
Hi Erin, I grew up in an Italian family from New Jersey, and as you likely know, we are quite opinionated about food. My late grandmother didn’t write down any recipes because she cooked by instinct, not measurements. So I scoured the internet for a cacciatore recipe for our family cookbook. I always modify recipes for our taste and health preferences. But yours is the first I’ve come across where I didn’t change a thing, and it is DIVINE, a family favorite! Thanks so much for sharing your recipes with the world!
Hi Cathy! So glad you enjoyed the recipe! Thank you for this kind review!
Erin, well done. I made this tonight and it was excellent. You’re to be congratulated.
Hi Joe! So glad you enjoyed the recipe! Thank you for this kind review!
The quantities of the ingredients are not indicated anywhere😦
Hi Tamara! I’m so confused because I see it on my end. It’s in the recipe card right above where you commented. You can even hit the “jump to recipe” button at the top of the page to get there faster. Could you please check again?
This was absolutely delicious! My husband raved! I added zucchini along with the other vegetables. I browned the chicken thighs, put them in the slow cooker, poured what was left in the frying pan over the chicken. I used olive oil to Brown the chicken. Add it all the vegetables and Italian spices. Wonderful!
Hi Patricia! So glad you enjoyed the recipe! Thank you for this kind review!
Thank you for the delicious recipe. I didn’t change a thing and it tasted awesome!!
Hi Lynne! So glad you enjoyed the recipe! Thank you for this kind review!
Can you use chicken drumsticks in this recipe
Hi Bonnie! Sure! Note that the chicken will take longer to cook, however. Use an instant-read thermometer to check the temperature of the chicken as it cooks. When it hits 165-170 degrees F it is fully cooked.
Great Recipe, I did use a dry red wine, cause that’s all I had. Also my crushed tomatoes. Were not chunky, so I added a chopped fresh one. And a little extra herbs. Pinch of cayenne. Mmmm
Hi Rhonda! So glad you enjoyed the recipe! Thank you for this kind review!
This is an easy, delicious, one pot recipe..well, ok, a second pot for the pasta! I don’t usually use 28 oz of crushed tomatoes (I use half crushed, half diced) but it really works here. Keep these delicious recipes coming!
Hi Judy! So glad you enjoyed the recipe! Thank you for this kind review!
Made this tonight. Delicious! Added chopped zucchini with the vegetables since we have an abundance right now. Used a jar of low carb tomato sauce instead of tomatoes.
Hi! So glad you enjoyed the recipe! Thank you for this kind review!
Excellent recipe! I had excess cremini mushrooms so this recipe was a great way to use them. Wonderful flavor!
Hi Cindy! So glad you enjoyed the recipe! Thank you for this kind review!
This recipe is absolutely 💯 delish !! The best c. Cacciatore we have ever made.. the olives really make it that much better!!
Hi Janice! So glad you enjoyed the recipe! Thank you for this kind review!
I am new to this dish and this the 3rd different recipe I’ve tried. Hands down the best! I added a dozen black olives (personal touch).
Hi Larry! So glad you enjoyed the recipe! Thank you for this kind review!
Made this tonight it the greatest very good
Hi Robert! So glad you enjoyed the recipe! Thank you for this kind review!
One of my favorite recipes. So hood. Though I separate the chicken thighs in water add spices for about 30 min. Then saute all the vegetables and add balsamic with all the rest of the ingredients. It comes out more moist and can tear chicken apart. It’s wonderful.
Hi Susan! So glad you enjoyed the recipe! Thank you for this kind review and feedback!
Easy with great flavor. Made this exactly as the recipe called… It’s a keeper!
Hi Lori! So glad you enjoyed the recipe! Thank you for this kind review!
Excellent, the best chicken cacciatore I ever made, served with mushroom risotto
Hi Naida! So glad you enjoyed the recipe! Thank you for this kind review!
This is an excellent and simple recipe. Instead of adding one large can of crushed tomatoes, I added a 14 ounce can of tomatoes with chilies and a 14 ounce can of tomato sauce.
I also let it simmer for about 45 minutes. Yummy!
Hi Anna! So glad you enjoyed the recipe! Thank you for this kind review!
I had never made Chicken Cacciatore before. Even before serving your recipe, my husband tasted the sauce, then strongly urged me to taste it; he said it would make a great soup just by itself! And the fire-roasted tomatoes were genius! They added so much to the flavor. Thanks for developing the recipe!
Hi! So glad you enjoyed the recipe! Thank you for this kind review!
You must think I am whacky with my last comments about your recipe for Chicken Cacciatore. In adding a couple of notes to your recipe, I discovered that my husband had goofed and had also given me four 14.5 ounce cans of fire-roasted tomatoes and one 28 ounce can of tomato sauce, which were purchased for another recipe. I added what was handed to me to your recipe. Despite the goof, the sauce was great! I froze some of the chicken with the sauce, as well as several cups of the sauce alone for other dishes.
I enjoy your recipes and look forward to trying others!
So glad it worked out for you guys! Thank you!
This was so delicious! I made the recipe exactly and it was so easy. Thank you! I had to nix the mushrooms because my son won’t eat them, but it was perfect nonetheless! I’m going to make all of your recipes. You know food!
Hi Mary! So glad you enjoyed the recipe! Thank you for this kind review!
This recipe is absolutely DELICIOUS!!!
Hi Lisa! So glad you enjoyed the recipe! Thank you for this kind review!
I’m making this tonight what can I swap out if I don’t have crushed tomatoes
Hi Debbi! I’ve only tested the recipe with crushed tomatoes, but I think tomato sauce might work with this as well. Hope you enjoy it!
Awesome dish!! An easy recipe to follow.. chicken was juicy.. I added red pepper to the mix… Thank you!
Hi Tony! So glad you enjoyed it! Thank you for this kind review!
I made this about a month ago. It was delicious and so easy. I cook for only one so I AM going to cut the recipe down so I don’t waste any food. I just now signed up for your recipes. Thank you 🙏😊😊
Hi Kerry! So glad you enjoyed the recipe! Thank you for this kind review!
This was delicious and easy to make. Perfect for a cold January weeknight. I served it with buttered noodles.
Hi JoJo! So glad you enjoyed the recipe! Thank you for this kind review!
Loved the recipe. I’ve made chicken cacciatore for years, and I’ve added wine if I had it, but this was the first time I’ve ever added Balsamic Vinegar to it. I thought it was a GREAT addition. Thanks for the tip!
Hi Jane! So glad you enjoyed the recipe! Thank you for this kind review!
Thank you for a fantastic chicken cacciatore! Takes a bit to get ready to cook but completely worth it. I added capers and green olives, as you advised could be added, and my son’s couldn’t get enough. Definitely recommend this recipe.
Hi bwishappy! So glad you enjoyed the recipe! Thank you for this kind review!
We thought this dish was fantastic, will definitely add this to our collection. Followed the recipe to a tee and was very easy to put together.
Hi Ed! So glad you enjoyed the recipe! Thank you for this kind review!
