Family Recipe: Chicken Cacciatore

Chicken Cacciatore, or "Hunter's Chicken," has always been a family favourite. This recipe is not quite the same as the way my mom makes it, but it was delicious!

Chicken Cacciatore

2 tbsp. olive oil
2 chicken breasts, cut in half
1/2 cup flour
Salt and pepper
2 cloves garlic, minced
2 medium zucchini
1 1/2 bell peppers
1 can diced tomatoes
3/4 cup chicken broth
1/2 cup dry white wine
1 tbsp. capers

Dredge the chicken breasts in a mixture of flour, salt, and pepper. Heat the olive oil in a large sauté pan over medium-high heat and once the oil starts to sizzle, add the chicken breasts. Cook on each side until golden brown.

Add the garlic, zucchini, and peppers to the pan and let cook for a few minutes until the zucchini begins to soften. Then, pour the tomatoes, broth, capers, and wine into the pan. Stir and then cover the pan with a lid. When the liquid begins to simmer, remove the lid. Turn the heat down to medium-low and let cook an additional 15 minutes.

Serve over pasta.
