Chicken Cacciatore is a traditional Italian peasant dish that combines chicken in a tomato based sauce and seasonal vegetables with many recipe variations.
'Cacciatore' litreally means 'hunter' in Italian, and this 'hunter style' dish makes good use of mushrooms (easily available to hunters trekking through forests!), onions, tomatoes and herbs.
This is so quick and simple that it will soon become a family favourite, just prepare and come back hours later for your Italian dinner.
You can use prosciutto or bacon if you can't find pancetta in this sumptuous and filling braised chicken cacciatore.
Low in kilojoules and very high on flavour, tomatoes are a wonderful food. Along with vitamin C, they offer a tremendous amount of lycopene, a cancer-fighting carotenoid.
