    1. 1
      Rinse the chicken pieces and pat them dry.
    2. 2
      Mix the flour, salt and pepper together in a large bowl. Toss the chicken pieces in the seasoned flour, shaking off any excess, and set aside.
    3. 3
      Heat the olive oil in a large sauté pan over medium-high flame. Add a few chicken pieces at a time and brown them on both sides. Remove the chicken to a plate.
    4. 4
      Add the onions and sauté for 2-3 minutes.
    5. 5
      Add the garlic and mushrooms and sauté for another 3-4 minutes, or until the mushrooms are wilted and cooked through.
    6. 6
      Stir in the wine and tomatoes and simmer for a few minutes until cooked down somewhat. Then stir in the water or stock, herbs and salt and pepper to taste.
    7. 7
      Reduce heat to medium-low and simmer for 20-30 minutes, or until the chicken is cooked through and tender.
    8. 8
      Adjust seasoning to taste and serve with polenta or roasted potatoes.
    9. 9
    10. 10
      Coniglio alla Cacciatora: use rabbit instead of chicken.
    11. 11
      Other possible additions: chopped bell peppers, chopped carrots, chopped celery, chopped oregano, bay leaves, juniper berries, dried porcini mushrooms, black olives, capers, 3 or 4 chopped anchovies.
    12. 12
      Use boneless, skinless chicken breast for a lower fat version.

      Very tasty and very simple to make. I used 4 bone-in thighs for the 2 of us, but made the whole amount of sauce, since I wanted some for the pasta I was serving with it. Wouldn't change anything, ingredient-wise. I would like to try the rabbit version also, but I am the only one who will eat it. :(

      I made this with just the drumsticks and loved it. I especially enjoyed the flavor of the herbs and the relatively low cooking time.

      This is a very nice cacciatore. The chicken stays very moist throughout cooking and was well recieved. Thank you-made for ZWT7.
