Recipe by The Messy Baker
Cacciatore means “hunter,” but the only hunting I did was to search for the mislaid corkscrew. Since I usually have all the required ingredients on hand, I’m tempted to rename this dish Chicken Dispensa (Pantry). It’s more accurate but just doesn’t have the same ring. In this version, I sautéed extra mushrooms for garnish. Maybe I should call it Chicken Cacciatore Fungi?
No matter what you call it, this recipe is very flexible. Cut up a whole chicken or use any combination of pieces you like. Use crimini, button or portobello mushrooms. Like it hot? Add some hot peppers along with the red.
