Chicken Bites Cacciatore

How to Make Chicken Bites Cacciatore

You’ve probably heard of chicken cacciatora (or more likely you’ve seen it as “cacciatore”). But, what does it mean? Thought to have originated during the Italian Renaissance, it literally translates as “hunter’s chicken,” as wild herbs, plants, and mushrooms were tossed in the pan along with the catch of the day. It’s a typical recipe popular in Italian cooking and can be prepared in multiple ways. We love it because not only is it easy to prepare, it is full of flavor. Make sure to have your scarpetta, or bread slice, ready – you’re going to want to mop up every last drop!

Vincenzo’s Top Tip To Make Chicken Bites Cacciatore

The bocconcini (chicken) can also be floured in rice flour for a gluten free recipe. The red wine can be replaced by vegetable broth. It is essential to brown the bocconcini over a high flame, keeping it high even as it is absorbing the wine. Then lower it and continue cooking over low heat.
