Chicken Cacciatore – Simple

Written by Josh P

Chicken Cacciatore refers to a Italian meal prepared “hunter-style” with onions, herbs, usually tomatoes, bell peppers, and sometimes wine. A favourite is chicken but also rabbit and any other meat they have caught. It has been adapted over the years and I have seen it made in under 15 minutes. To have a lovely thick sauce, it needs to “blip” for at least 30 minutes to absorb the flavours and become excellent. Furthermore I add chillies to the recipe as it can keep the heat without everything being overpowered.

  • Fry the onion and garlic in the oil until softened.

  • Boil a pan of salted water and cook the spaghetti according to instructions
  • Put the chicken on a baking tray, top with the sauce and bake for 15-20 mins until cooked through. Serve scattered with basil on a bed of fluffy rice.


This can be served with pasta, rice or veg. I have also tried this with mushrooms and Worchester sauce.
