This classic Chicken Cacciatore recipe will warm your insides as we start thinking about cooking heartier meals for dinner in the cooler Winter months. Chicken Cacciatore is a well-balanced meal option which is not as heavy as foods like pasta rich in creamy sauces or comfort food like pizza.
Chicken Cacciatore is a great dinner meal that can be served with a salad, baked vegetables, mashed potato or rice if you don’t want to have it on its own with some crusty bread on the side. This recipe taken from Woolworths may take a while to cook in order to get the melt in your mouth flavours, however, it is simple to prepare and is perfect for the family or the dinner party.
Chicken Cacciatore Recipe – Serves 4
- 1kg chicken thighs and drumsticks
- ½ cup plain flour
- 2 tbs olive oil

- Lightly coat chicken thighs and drumsticks with flour. Heat oil in a large heatproof casserole over medium heat. Cook chicken, in batches, for 8-10 minutes or until golden on all sides. Transfer to a plate.
Healthy tip: Place paper towels on the plate before transferring the chicken to soak up excess oil

Reduce heat, cover and simmer for 45 minutes or until chicken is cooked through. Add olives. Cook for 2 minutes to heat through.
