Pollo alla Cacciatora

Chicken Hunter's Style

Pollo alla Cacciatora

Pollo alla Cacciatora, literally translating to hunters' chicken, is a recipe whose main ingredient was the catch of the day - chicken or rabbit!  You'll see this recipe throughout Italy where the meat braised, then slow-cooked with tomatoes, onions, carrots, rosemary and oregano with a little white or red wine.  The ingredients in this recipe meld together, creating a hearty and aromatic flavor.  After a few hours of slow cooking in a copper pan, serve with toasted Italian bread rubbed with fresh garlic.

Difficulty: Beginner Best Season: Suitable throughout the year



  1. Chop the vegetables finely and put them on a low heat with the oil and a glass of white wine for about 5 minutes.

    Add the chicken and fry it on a higher heat for about 5-10 minutes until light brown. Pour a glass of white wine and after it has evaporated, add the peeled tomatoes, salt and pepper and the olives.

    Put a lid on and leave to cook slowly for about 30-40 minutes. If necessary, add some hot water. Serve it hot.
