Chicken Cacciatore

Chicken Caccitore, one of my favorite meals! This dish is very easy to make and tastes scrumptious. I have made a few tweaks to the original recipe. One of the keys to this recipe is the dicing of the onions. My mom used to make dishes with huge onion pieces I could not stand. When onions are diced they impart their sweet flavor and are not obnoxious to eat. Another trick is to use fresh tomatoes instead of canned tomatoes, it gives it a great fresh taste.

Chicken Cacciatore
Tastes Like Italy

  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 4 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2-3 chicken breasts or 6 chicken thighs
  • 1 medium onion, diced
  • bunch of mushrooms, sliced
  • 4 whole tomatoes, diced
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • 2 teaspoon dried Italian seasoning
  • 1-2 teaspoons tomato paste


1. Heat oil in pan. Add the onions and cook until they are golden, and remove from pan. Coat the chicken with flour by shaking it in a ziplock bag a few pieces at a time.

2. Add chicken to the same pan the onions were cooked in. Cook the chicken until it is golden on both sides.

3. Add mushrooms to pan. Cook for 5 minutes.

4. Add the remaining ingredients to the pan, simmer on low 40 minutes.

5. Serve over noodles or rice. I like serving this with angel hair pasta and my kids love rotini. You can also top with cheese. The picture was topped with Romano cheese. Enjoy!

I like to cook in a cast iron skillet to give it plenty of flavor.
