"Cacciatore means "hunter" in Italian. In cuisine, it refers to a meal prepared "hunter-style" with tomatoes, onions, and herbs, and is popularly made with braised chicken. Chicken Cacciatore is a dish in itself, but it may also be paired with pasta or even with rice. Fancy and complicated as it may seem, Chicken Cacciatore is very easy to make." - Kriska Marie of Sweet Nothings
Here is our own version! :)
2 450g-packs boneless skinless chicken breast halves
(the boyfie chops it into small pieces)
8 pcs medium-sized ripe tomatoes, cut into cubes
2 tbsp ground black pepper (for sauce) and another 1 tsp (for chicken)
1 tbsp olive oil for frying
2 tbsp fresh parsley, finely-chopped (we didn't add)
1 250g-can whole button mushrooms, thinly-sliced
3 cloves garlic, minced
1 medium-sized onion, chopped
2 tbsp dried oregano (we didn't add)
2 tbsp honey (we didn't add)
whole wheat fusilli or brown rice
1 sachet of ketchup
1 1/2 spoon of flour
1 1/2 cup of water
For the pasta (any pasta would do), cook according to package directions.
Wash chicken breasts with running water. Pat-dry with clean cloth or paper towel, and season with pepper.
In a sauce pan with oil over medium-high heat, cook chicken until golden brown. Flip the chicken to cook the other side. About 4 minutes per side.
Remove chicken from heat, chop to small pieces, transfer to a clean plate, and set aside.
In the same pan where we cooked the chicken, saute garlic over medium heat until golden brown. Add in the onions and cook until translucent.
