Chicken cacciatore – Italian recipe

Also called “chicken hunter’s style”: famous in Italian restaurants all over the world and here in its original Milanese form! Find this and many more recipes on the Giallozafferano App in English


Hi GialloZafferano viewers and welcome to our kitchen. I’m Deborah and today we’ll be making a traditional Milanese main dish that’s very simple to prepare: Chicken Cacciatore. Let’s see what we’ll need:
• 1 2 and ½ pound chicken
• A bunch of parsley
• 1 clove of garlic
• 1 onion
• 2 carrots
• 3 ribs of celery • ½ cup of olive oil
• 14 oz of tinned peeled tomatoes
• A sprig of rosemary
• 1 cup of red wine
• Salt and pepper to taste.
OK, let’s prepare our chicken.
First of all, wash, dry and cut the chicken into pieces. Now, place the pieces in a pan of hot oil to brown off for at least 10 minutes.
Now, add to the chicken the diced onion and garlic, diced carrot and celery, the rosemary, a good pinch of salt, and the pepper. Let it cook for another 15 minutes.
After that add the red wine to the chicken. When it cooks off, it’s time to add the tomatoes cut into pieces. Cover it up and let it simmer on a low heat for at least a half an hour. If it starts to look dry, just add a bit of broth or water as needed.
After everything is cooked, add the minced parsley to finish and you’re ready to serve your chicken cacciatore. From GialloZafferano, buon appetito and see you next ti

Mishy loves says:

what can I use instead of red wine?/plz

valnaples says:

I tried it…really fabulous! Loved the flavors…thanks!

Shevaan Kapuwatte says:

Dry rosemary is alot more intense in flavour, just try this again with less rosemary and dont break it up as the flavour will just intensify, what we want is a light fresh hint of it 🙂

You can try with red wine vinegar or cider vinegar, but use a smaller amount

that’s exactly what you shouldnt do, italian food is simple and that’s the secret. With good ingridients you can just give at your dish lot of flavours without seasoning too much. You need to taste and smell the rosemary in this recepe.

yellowsaffron says:

White wine would be better, though

andydru55 says:

why did they replace sonia with this cakeface?

yellowsaffron says:

@maysih87 Use non-alcoholic wine if you can find it. Otherwise try without, even if the recipe should need it

Renata Russo says:

I already watched more than a dozen videos from this channel, and one thing I wanted to share, I am from a Italian immigrant family, and finally I’m learning more about Italian culinary. Thanks so much for that!

JulianZeezer says:

This is a lot closer to ‘real’ chicken cacciatore than most of the vids on youtube.  I’m sure it tastes delicious. The lady appears to be a good cook.  Thanks for the vid!
