South of the Border Chicken Cacciatore is a divine recipe that produces a thick sauce full of flavour and texture. Furthermore in culinary terms, alla cacciatora refers to a meal prepared “hunter-style”. That means with onions, herbs, usually tomatoes, often bell peppers, and sometimes wine. I make this recipe with chicken or rabbit but any left over meat can be included. I serve this recipe as a main dish and ideal with hot pasta. Add a little grated cheese on top.

This is a lovely recipe that blends chicken with a mild spice hit.
