FOOD HOLIDAY: National Chicken Cacciatore Day

October 15th is National Chicken Cacciatore Day. Chicken cacciatore (cah-cha-toe-ray) is Italian country fare. Cacciatore means hunter, so the dish is “hunter-style” (in Italian, pollo alla cacciatora).

The game that the hunter brought home was braised in olive oil with local vegetables—a light tomato sauce with garlic, herbs and onions, plus wild mushrooms, bell peppers and a bit of wine (white wine in the north, red wine in the south).

The dish has its roots in in central Italy in the Renaissance and has many variations, both there and throughout the country. One of the more unusual is salamino cacciatore, made with a small salame.

Chicken cacciatore has been called a “hunter’s solace,” with poultry from the yard or market replacing the pheasant or hare that got away. The wild mushrooms were foraged in the forest by the hunter.

This recipe serves 6.
