Chicken Cacciatore / Pollo alla Cacciatore

Hunter’s style chicken breast, tenderstem broccoli, tomato,chilli,garlic and rosemary

Cacciatore means hunter in Italian and every family in Italy makes this dish almost daily. The chicken is slow cooked with the sauce which gives it amazing flavors.

I used boneless chicken breast in this recipe which are thin sliced but you can also make it with with skin and with bones chicken. Crispy texture of skin will give this dish really nice flavour. I also used red chili and red chili flakes in this but you can skip it if you do not like chilies. You can also serve this dish with white steamed rice or boiled pasta.
