Chicken cacciatore means chicken “hunter style.” The chicken is usually braised with onions, herbs, tomatoes, and bell peppers. The other day I bought a rotisserie chicken at Costco so the chicken part was already cooked and we just heated it up in the oven slowly so it would not dry out. While that was going on I made the “hunter” sauce. Because I wanted to make the dish more filling i.e., more vegetables, less meat, I used pearl onions (frozen), peppedew peppers, garlic, fennel, bell pepper, zucchini, cherry tomatoes, olive oil, fresh oregano, and chicken stock. The whole thing bubbled together for about fifteen minutes. I served this with a little rice and the warmed chicken breast. Even though I pared down the calories, it was still very good.
Note: Sometimes you can find peppedew peppers in a store’s salad bar. They add a sweet, pickled flavor to the dish.
