Fantastic fast food with your rice cooking machine.
Hi it’s Adam Smith, back with another recipe for all you busy people out there.
This is one of those recipes I found years ago in an old, tattered Italian cookbook. Every time I’d remake it through the years, I’d adjust something in it to eventually reach a cacciatore recipe… “so perfect”, it’s one recipe your entire family will look forward too!
Cacciatore means hunter in Italian, and alla cacciatora translates to a hunter-style meal with chicken (or rabbit), onions, tomatoes, herbs, vegetables, and usually wine or vinegar.
How do you make chicken cacciatore?
This Chicken Cacciatore recipe is an easy throw-together-meal with the most delicious sauce; full of incredible flavours! Garlic, bell peppers, onions, carrots and olives swimming in a rustic tomato Cacciatore sauce, simmering and soaking into juicy chicken thighs until they fall off the bone and melt in your mouth!
2 skinless chicken thighs bone-in
Salt and pepper to season
1 tablespoons olive oil (more if needed )
1 medium onion diced
2 tablespoons minced garlic (or 8 cloves)
1 small yellow bell pepper (capsicum), diced (optional)
1 small red bell pepper (capsicum), diced medium (optional)
1 carrot peeled and sliced (optional)
1 small packet mushrooms sliced
1/2 cup pitted black olives
8 sprigs thyme
2 tablespoons each freshly chopped parsley and basil plus more to garnish
1 teaspoon dried oregano
150 ml red wine
1 can diced tomatoes
2 tablespoons tomato paste
Combine together in your rice cooking machine, and cook on a slow setting for 1 hour.
You can also add rice and other vegetables if you want to. (EASY!!)
I hope you enjoy this recipe!
